New DISCUSSION, MARINE

DISCUSSION
Issued at 400 PM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Tonight...Breezy to gusty conditions are present across much of the area this afternoon, especially around the Orlando metro and along the immediate coast. RAP analysis shows a tightening pressure gradient over the FL Peninsula, reflected in some of the higher wind gusts in the last couple of hours. Observing sites around Cape Canaveral to Cocoa Beach are reaching gusts of 35 mph and briefly higher at times. A weak disturbance is moving onshore just south of Melbourne and providing the focus for some heavier shower activity. So far, no lightning has been detected in or around these showers, but it cannot be entirely ruled out along the coast or just offshore through the evening. Locally higher gusts to 40 mph at the coast may also accompany this feature as it moves ashore.

Wind gusts will persist tonight along the coast, reaching 25 to 30 mph at times, but decreasing to 15-20 mph inland. Isolated to scattered showers are expected to continue with a very low chance for lightning at the coast and over the Atlantic waters.
Temperatures will gradually fall into the 70s, staying slightly warmer east of I-95.

Wednesday-Thursday...Mid level ridging remains in place through tomorrow but begins to flatten as a weak trough of low pressure approaches the southeast U.S. This is the same feature highlighted by NHC for a low chance of developing tropical characteristics in the next few days. At this point, model guidance does very little with it, other than to provide another wave of moisture and associated shower activity somewhere along the FL/GA or Carolina coastline Thursday afternoon into early Friday. Models remain in some disagreement with regard to the placement and timing of this feature, but an increasing trend to high chance/likely PoPs is forecast Wednesday into Thursday. Brief, localized heavy rainfall is possible as a result, though the QPF remains near 1.20" or less for most locations through Friday morning. Temperatures each day will remain near to slightly below normal with overnight lows ranging through the 70s. A couple of warm low records may occur at coastal sites due to the persistent onshore flow. Gusty winds are forecast to continue, reaching 25-30+ mph at times, especially along the immediate coast.

Saturday-Monday (modified previous)...Upper level high pressure centered across the Deep South on Saturday will slowly shift westward through the time, with the axis remaining over the Florida peninsula. Surface high pressure in the western Atlantic will build southwestward over the Florida peninsula through the period. Locally, winds will generally be around 10 mph, with E/SE winds forecast on Saturday before becoming S/SE on Sunday and Monday. The east coast sea breeze is expected to form each afternoon and push inland. Rain chances will remain elevated through early week, with rain chances persisting into early next week. For now, kept likely PoPs out of the forecast due to variability in model solutions. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s across the immediate coast, and low to mid 90s across the interior each day. Overnight lows will generally be in the low to mid 70s.

MARINE
Issued at 400 PM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Tonight...Hazardous boating conditions will continue as easterly winds 20-25 kt and occasional gusts of 30-35 kt. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for all of the adjacent waters through at least Thursday evening. Seas will continue to build, reaching 7-8 ft offshore north of Sebastian Inlet tonight and 6-7 ft nearshore. A stream of isolated to scattered showers is also forecast, with a very low probability of lightning strikes. Some of these showers could mix down locally higher wind gusts at times.

Wednesday-Saturday (modified previous)...Poor to hazardous boating conditions will continue through late week as a weak trough approaches the Florida peninsula and southeast U.S. coast.
Onshore flow will persist with winds generally 15-20 KT in the nearshore waters and 20-25 KT in the offshore waters through Thursday. Winds will decrease to around 10-15 KT by late week and into the weekend. Seas 6-8ft on Wednesday will increase to 7-9 ft on Thursday, before beginning to subside on Friday with seas decreasing to 4-6ft. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for all the Atlantic waters on Wednesday, and has been extended in time through at least Thursday evening. Scattered to numerous showers and isolated lightning storms will be possible each day.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFs)
Issued at 137 PM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Not the best day for flying. Easterly winds increasing to around 20 kts with gusts to 30 kts, remaining 15-20 kts with gusts 25-30 kts at the coastal terminals while inland terminals settle to 10-15 kts overnight, then picking back again in the morning and afternoon. Increasing moisture will support mainly VFR -SHRA at all terminals through the TAF period, but occasional MVFR impacts will be possible. Best chances for these reductions in the near term from KMLB-KVRB and maybe KFPR where relatively deeper bands of convection are moving onshore, but beyond that very low confidence in location.
