East Central Florida Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne FL
754 PM EST Fri Dec 2 2016

Tonight...Modest winds out of the NNE to N will continue overnight
with drainage inland backing winds to a NNW to N component. This
will allow for a good cooldown overnight. Some higher level
cloudiness moving in should not hinder radiational cooling
significantly as far northern interior sections fall to around
50...some upper 40s rural areas. Lower/mid 50s can be expected
remainder of interior and coastal Volusia, and low/mid 50s along
Treasure Coast.


Saturday/Saturday Night...High pressure slides east from the
Midwest, with low level winds veering more ENE daytime as it does
so. Winds becoming a little breezy/gusty near the coast. The
veering flow will also begin a slow moderation of temperatures and
moisture. Daytime highs expected in the mid 70s most of the area,
lower 70s at the Volusia coast. No rainfall and skies averaging
partly sunny...with a few more clouds near the coast versus
inland. Overnight lows generally in the U50s to L60s across
the interior/Volusia coast and M-U60s along the Space and Treasure
coasts. Conditions will remain dry.


VFR. Modest to light northerly winds 10 kt or less will veer toward
ENE during Sat and again pick up to around 15kt with ocnl G20kt near
the east coast by afternoon.


Tonight-Saturday...Northerly winds overnight will veer toward the
ENE into Saturday. The northerly component will continue to keep
seas elevated to around 6 feet over the gulf stream, so cautionary
headlines offshore legs will continue overnight and the early part
of Saturday.

Sat Night-Tue...Winds NE early in the period will veer to E Sat
overnight, then SE by early Sun, southerly Mon overnight and
southwesterly on Tue ahead of the front. Wind speeds will average
around 15 kts over the open Atlc over much of this time, perhaps
15-20 kts well offshore and south of the Cape ahead of the
approaching front late Mon into Tue.

Seas 4-5 ft on Sat subsiding slowly to 3-4 ft on Sun into early Mon
aftn, before building back to 4-5 ft well offshore late Mon aftn-Mon
night. On Tue seas may build up to around 6 ft over the Gulf
