Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 340 AM EDT Sat Aug 8 2020

DISCUSSION. Today and Tonight . Broad ridge extending from the Wrn Atlc basin across the FL peninsula wl provide for light winds. By midday sea breezes will develop along both coasts along with other localized boundaries. Abundant moisture and sfc heating will lead to development of showers and lightning storms just inland from the coast by early afternoon with slow to erratic movement. The PoP forecast once again favors inland zones for rain coverage and amounts. Storms will have a better chance of nearing the east coast over Volusia county late today. Given the slow movement expected, there is a chance of locally heavy rainfall across inland sites, including the I-4 corridor, Metro Orlando and Osceola county. Highs will make it into the L-M 90s most areas before onset of seabreezes and rain chances. Storms will steadily taper off in coverage past nightfall with most all activity ending over land by 11 PM.

Sun-Mon . The area will be between high pressure over the Gulf and subtropical ridge to the east, keeping a light and somewhat variable wind flow across the region. These weaker winds will allow the sea breeze boundaries to develop along both coasts and push inland, with greatest chance for showers and storms across the interior through late afternoon and sunset as sea breeze and storm outflow boundaries collide. Have PoPs ranging from 50-60 percent over the interior, dropping to 40 percent along much of the coast. Models do show some drier air nosing in from the east toward the Lake Okeechobee region on Sunday, so will have rain chances slightly lower around 30 percent directly along the Treasure Coast. Gradual inland movement of the east coast sea breeze and delay in highest storm coverage until later in the day will allow highs to reach the upper 80s to low 90s along the coast to low-mid 90s inland.

Tue-Fri . Ridge axis of high pressure over the west Atlantic will remain across the area into mid week, but will then shift just north of central Florida later in the week. PW values around 1.8-2.0 inches will largely remain in place Tue-Wed, keeping storm coverage above normal (PoPs up to 60-70%) across the interior from late day boundary collisions. Latest GFS shows a stronger onshore flow developing into late week, which may decrease storm coverage somewhat as afternoon convection concentrates more toward the interior and western side of the FL peninsula. However, ECMWF remains a little more wet for the region, and for now have stayed closer to NBM guidance for rain chances Thu-Fri, up to 50-60 percent. Highs will remain near to above normal through the period.

AVIATION. VFR giving way to increasing coverage of TS inland sites aft 08/19Z. TS was used in TEMPO groups interior after 19-20Z through dusk. Coastal sites will see primary chance this morning as the east coast breeze begins to move inland.

MARINE. Today and Tonight . Favorable weekend conditions expected over the open waters. Very weak flow pattern light and variable early becoming onshore at 10kt near the coast in the afternoon with the sea breeze. Seas 1-2ft, with the threat for any offshore moving storms mainly near the Volusia intracoastal and nearshore waters late today.

Sun-Wed . Surface ridge axis of high pressure over the west Atlantic will generally remain extended across central Florida from Sunday through middle of next week. This will continue favorable boating conditions across the coastal waters, with light southerly winds each morning around 5 to 10 knots becoming E/SE into the afternoon as the east coast sea breeze forms and moves inland. Seas will remain around 1-2 feet.

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.
