Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 1022 PM EDT Mon Aug 3 2020

DISCUSSION. Looks to remain mostly dry through the rest of the night. Latest HRRR guidance has been indicating scattered showers developing late tonight across central/southern sections of east central Florida. However, MOS and hi-res model guidance has been overplaying rain chances by quite a bit. Will therefore keep rain chances largely out of the forecast for land areas, except for some slight chance PoPs toward the Treasure Coast late. Better potential for any redeveloping showers and possibly a few storms will be over the gulf stream after midnight. Skies will be mostly clear with lows in the 70s.

AVIATION. Dry air behind Isaias continues to keep convection very limited this evening. VFR conditions through the TAF period. Winds this evening are from the W at 5-10KT for the inland sites, and out of the SE at 5-10KT along the coast. The sea breeze has formed and is moving inland. Took all mention of precip out for the evening and overnight hours. Boundary collisions along the sea breeze may produce showers, but the dry stable air will make the convection short lived. Tomorrow, winds will start off SW around 5KT before veering to WSW/W at 5-10KT by late morning. By the afternoon the winds will back to the SE around 10KT along the coast as the sea breeze forms and moves inland. Included VCTS for all sites starting at 18Z.

MARINE. Southerly winds around 10-15 knots will persist offshore tonight. Have allowed all SCA headlines to expire as seas continue to decrease with Isaias moving farther away from the area. However, will continue exercise caution headlines offshore, north of Sebastian Inlet, for lingering seas up to 6 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.
