Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne FL
900 PM EDT SAT SEP 24 2016

...Lingering swells will keep the Rip Current risk at area beaches
elevated Sunday...

Afternoon/evening convection has died down over eastern
side of state with some residual breeze collision activity over the
west. Past several nights have featured additional convection well
into the evening due to the very moist airmass in place and boundary
interactions over areas that did not receive much TS activity
earlier in day. Some short range models including HRRR and local 1km
version of the WRF show the potential for this to occur again over
the interior of the southern counties late this evening. Will
monitor potential on radar before releasing update to potentially
include later evening pops. Otherwise forecast on track.

.AVIATION...Convection has dropped off and expect VFR conditions
overnight with light winds. More TS developement Sunday afternoon
mainly between 18-21Z near coast and after 21Z over interior.



Tonight/Sunday...NE-E winds 5-10 knots expected with an E to NE
swell of 3-4 ft near shore and 4-5 ft well offshore. Scattered
showers/storms expected mainly south of Cocoa Beach Sunday.
