Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 857 PM EST Wed Dec 11 2019

UPDATE.

Current-Tonight . The biggest change this evening was to lower min temperatures area-wide, as observations were already at or nearing the min for tonight. Temperatures will be in the low 60s north of I-4, warming to the upper 60s in Martin and St. Lucie Counties. A line of showers from Lake Okeechobee to Stuart are beginning to dissipate at this time, with higher coverage returning again after midnight. No significant changes to the PoPs forecast overnight, with showers likely along the immediate Treasure Coast, tapering to a slight chance for the northern interior. Confidence is too low at this time to include patchy fog, although some locations could see brief visibility reductions overnight with a stalled frontal boundary draped from Tampa to Melbourne.

Seas were also updated to reflect current conditions. Please see the Marine section for more.

AVIATION. Stalled frontal boundary stretching across central FL from KSRQ to KMLB will continue a messy forecast for terminals tonight and through much of tomorrow. A narrow precip band ahead of this boundary remains pinned over Lake Okeechobee and btwn KFPR/KSUA this evening, gradually dissipating toward midnight. MVFR cigs/vis prevail overnight, dropping to IFR for terminals north of KMCO prior to 06Z. Behind front, northerly winds will surge up to 12-15 kts, with highest values arriving tomorrow after 14Z.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
