Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 913 AM EDT Mon Aug 10 2020

DISCUSSION.

Current-Tonight . Continue to be influenced by weak high pressure ridging across central FL. 915 MHZ Cape wind profilers continue to show a very weak profile with winds variable at 5 kts from just off the surface through aloft. The 10Z KXMR sounding shows a PWAT of 1.95 inches and a "cool" 500 mb temp of -8.9C. The pressure gradient remains weak and expect the ECSB to develop fairly quickly this morning and venture slowly inland this afternoon once again. Mesoscale models only show ISOLD activity along it west of I-95 into mid afternoon, but suspect that late day boundary collisions between lake/sea/mesoscale outflows will ignite SCT-NMRS coverage once again from late afternoon into early evening over the interior. The steering flow remains weak and suspect there will be slow/erratic movement with cells. PoP chances near 30pct close to the coast with 40-60pct as you extend westward into the central peninsula for late today. Parameters are in place for a few strong storms once again. The main storm threats will be frequent-excessive lightning strikes, strong wind gusts up to 45 to 55 mph, small coin-size hail, and locally heavy rainfall due to slow storm motion. Isolated rainfall amounts of 2-3 inches in a 60-90 minute period remain possible. Cannot rule out an isolated severe storm like the previous day. Convection will gradually wind down through mid-late evening, with rain/cloud debris slowly thinning thereafter.

Yes, it will be another hot and humid day, with highs in the U80s to L90s along the coast and into the M90s inland, with heat index values around 105 degrees. Overnight lows will again average well into the 70s.

AVIATION. VFR conditions outside of convection again today. IFR- MVFR in/around mainly afternoon-evening showers/lightning storms. ISOLD convection again possible late this morning/early afternoon along slowly inland pushing ECSB. Activity expected to increase in both coverage/intensity as the sea breeze ventures inland and into the interior this afternoon and early evening. Rain/cloud debris will diminish through late evening/overnight. Will monitor "VC" wording at interior TAF sites and adjust tempo groupings accordingly. A few strong/severe storms possible again today over the interior. Threats to aviation include torrential downpours, frequent lightning, small hail, and wind gusts in excess of 35 kts.

MARINE. Today-Tonight . ISOLD-WDLY SCT showers/storms over mainly the Gulf Stream again this morning and just off of the Martin County coast. With sea breeze formation and inland movement storms will favor into the interior and across inland lakes where mariners here are not immune from lightning/strong, gusty winds and will need to keep an eye to the sky. Otherwise, variable light flow this morning will become onshore with sea breeze development and perhaps a light southerly flow over the open Atlc north of Sebastian Inlet. Seas continue 1-2 ft.

MLB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. FL . None. AM . None.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
