.DISCUSSION...

TONIGHT...MULTIPLE BOUNDARY COLLISIONS LED TO SCATTERED-NUMEROUS
COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS ACROSS THE REGION LATE THIS AFTERNOON
AND EVENING. INTENSITY HAS WANED CONSIDERABLY LATE THIS
EVENING...LEAVING MOSTLY LIGHT TO MODERATE DEBRIS RAINFALL MAINLY
ACROSS THE ORLANDO METRO. WITH LITTLE TO NO STEERING FLOW...ACTIVITY
WILL BE SLOW TO RAIN ITSELF OUT IN ITS CURRENT LOCATIONS. THE ONE
EXCEPTION HAS BEEN THE SMALL LINE OF OUTFLOW DRIVEN SHOWERS THAT
PUSHED UP THE BARRIER ISLAND FROM INDIAN RIVER AND IS NOW MAKING ITS
WAY THROUGH N BREVARD. THESE WILL CONTINUE TO DRIFT NORTH ALONG THE
COAST INTO THE ATLANTIC THROUGH MIDNIGHT.

MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY LATE TONIGHT AFTER
SHOWERS END. THE LOW LEVEL RIDGE AXIS REMAINS IN PLACE NEAR THE
CENTRAL FLORIDA PENINSULA ALLOWING WINDS TO BECOME LIGHT OR CALM
OVERNIGHT WITH ANOTHER ROUND OF PATCHY GROUND FOG. OVERNIGHT LOWS
WILL CONTINUE IN THE LOW TO MID 70S.

&&

.AVIATION...LINGERING LIGHT RAIN AFFECTING TAF SITES
KLEE-KORL-KMCO-KISM THROUGH 11/03Z ALONG WITH A SMALL BAND OF SHRA
BRUSHING BREVARD COAST NEAR KTIX-KXMR. PATCHY GROUND FOG MAY REDUCE
VSBYS SOUTH OF MCO (VRB/FPR/SUA) AGAIN OVERNIGHT/EARLY FRI MORNING
THROUGH 13Z DUE TO VERY MOIST LOW  LEVELS AND CALM WIND. PERSISTENT
FCST CONTINUES WITH DAILY SEA BREEZE REGIME AND SCT AFTN STORMS
AGAIN FOR FRI.

&&

.MARINE...MARINE FORECAST CONTINUES SIMILAR TO THE PAST FEW DAYS AS
THE SURFACE RIDGE AXIS TO REMAINS SITUATED OVER THE CENTRAL
PENINSULA. E/ESE WINDS THIS EVENING BECOMING MORE SOUTHERLY AROUND
10KTS OVERNIGHT THOUGH WINDS SOUTH OF SEBASTIAN INLET MAY REMAIN
MORE ESE DUE TO POSITION OF RIDGE AXIS.

THE MAIN MARINE WEATHER CONCERN WILL CONTINUE TO BE STORMS THAT
PRODUCE LIGHTNING STRIKES AND GUSTY WINDS. THESE SHOULD OCCUR MAINLY
DURING THE NIGHT AND EARLY MORNING OVER THE OPEN ATLANTIC. DAYTIME
HEATING STORMS OVER THE MAINLAND WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT THE
INTRACOASTAL AND NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC AS STEERING FLOW ALOFT REMAINS
VERY WEAK AND UNABLE TO PUSH STORMS TO FAR OFF OF THE COAST.
