Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne FL
930 PM EDT Fri Oct 20 2017

.UPDATE...
Isolated to scattered coastal showers brought some light to
moderate rainfall across areas mainly from Melbourne southward
this afternoon. Radar estimated rainfall was generally around a
tenth to two tenths of an inch and up to half an inch estimated in
Martin county.

After a brief lull in shower activity early this evening shower
activity over the Atlantic has started to increase somewhat
again.  Breezy onshore flow along the coast will help continue to
push a few of these showers onshore mainly from the Cape
southward through Martin county. Have extended the slight chance
of showers up through northern Brevard county based on radar
trends and have decreased sky cover over the interior. Otherwise
forecast is in good shape.

&&

.AVIATION...Mainly VFR over the next 24 hours. Some very brief
MVFR ceilings and isolated showers are possible along the coast
from TIX-SUA during the overnight. Interior sites should stay
dry. Winds will again be breezy out of the E/ENE during the late
morning through early evening on Saturday. A slight chance of
showers will continue along the coast but only have VCSH at SUA
at this time as higher moisture begins to approach from the south
Saturday afternoon.

&&

.MARINE...Tonight (previous)...Winds and seas remain near
advisory criteria, especially over the Gulf Stream and southern
waters. It is expected the northern segments will see improvement
to allow for lowering of advisory incrementally on Saturday. Seas
will remain choppy however due to opposing winds and lingering
swell with highest seas near the Gulf Stream.

&&

.HYDROLOGY...
The middle and upper Saint Johns River basins remain in flood. A
brief respite in notable rain will help allow steady state or
slight decline in river levels during the weekend
