Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 1014 PM EDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Issued at 1000 PM EDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Convection was focused across northern and central sections today from Brevard and Osceola northward. Boundary collisions produced the heaviest rains stretching from north Brevard, Orange and into central Lake county. The highest rainfall totals occurred near Windemere where a handful of rain gages reported 4-5 inches. Wind fields were weak and lapse rates were unimpressive so downburst winds were not very strong. Peak wind gust was 40 mph at LEE.
Only isolated showers remain over the interior and these will diminish soon resulting in a quiet overnight.

Issued at 412 PM EDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Sunday... High pressure will build to the north over the western Atlantic and the state of Florida with winds forecast to veer onshore and increase into the afternoon at 10-15mph. Predominate onshore easterly flow will keep the west coast sea breeze from making it far inland into central Florida. Shower and storm chances decrease as result with PoPs ~ 30-50%. The highest shower and storm chances are forecast over the western interior where outflow from previous storms converge with the east coast sea breeze. Afternoon highs in the upper 80s to low 90s are forecast with heat index values in the mid 90s to low 100s under partly cloudy to partly sunny skies. Low temperatures in the low to upper 70s are expected.

Monday-Friday (modified previous discussion)... Stout mid-level ridge across the mid Atlc/southeast U.S. extending into the FL peninsula will strengthen thru Tue night along the Eastern Seaboard, but is undercut Wed-Fri by some westward moving mid- level impulses. Temperatures warm aloft, as well, -4.0C to -5.5C.
Plentiful PWAT values near 2 inches on Mon, then some overall drier air moves in through mid-week before a return to more moist conditions Thu-Fri. The deep onshore flow continues thru the period and along with the warm temperatures aloft may at best provide for ISOLD lightning chances, especially over land.
Slightly cooler temperatures aloft Wed-Fri, along with an influx of moisture may be enough to promote SCT wording for thunder during this timeframe. Showers will remain in the SCT category with perhaps NMRS showers Thu-Fri.

With the persistent onshore flow at least into Wed, we will likely see the greatest precip chances along the coast overnight/morning-early afternoon hours, with higher afternoon- evening convective chances across the interior. The pressure gradient is expected to tighten next week with breezy onshore conditions each day with gusts to 25-30mph and perhaps remaining elevated along the coast during the evening/overnight periods.
This will create additional convergence along the coast and the latter part of this period. We may have to watch for some pockets of heavy low-topped showery precip, especially along the coast. By Wed night thru Fri, medium range models suggest higher PoPs areawide due to a wave of low pressure that is forecast to approach the east coast of Florida. There is high uncertainty in the forecast mid to late week at this point with global models now trending towards a potential tropical wave/low developing and moving west over the western Atlantic towards the Southeastern U.S. coast. Have continued to undercut the NBM's high-PoP bias in the midterm for now with high rain and storm chances forecast to return late week.

Thanks in part to the onshore flow, temperatures will be seasonable through the period, with afternoon highs in the U80s to L90s (interior), and overnight lows remaining mild in the 70s.

(00Z TAFs)
Issued at 800 PM EDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Mainly VFR conds forecast through the TAF period. Gradual decrease in mid and high clouds overnight with light and variable winds. On Sat, a deeper east flow develops which advects some drier air lowering SHRA/TSRA coverage. So only have VCSH for the interior terminals aft 18Z, pushing westward.

Issued at 412 PM EDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Currently-Tonight... High pressure will build to the north of Florida into the overnight. Isolated showers (PoPs ~20-30%) and lightning storms capable of gusty winds are forecast over the local Atlantic into the early morning hours. West to southwest winds at 5-10kts are forecast to veer northeast into Sunday morning.

Sun-Wed...An onshore wind component will develop on Sun continuing into next week while getting deeper/stronger. Wind speeds increasing 8-14 kts on Sun, 11-17 kts Sun night, and 15-22 kts Mon-Wed as the pgrad tightens. Seas remain 2-3 ft into Sun evening, 3-4 ft Sun night, 4-5 ft Mon-early Tue, 4-6 ft Tue aftn-Wed night. ISOLD- SCT convection thru Sun with SCT showery precip into Wed ramping up to likely Wed night.
