Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne FL
910 AM EST Fri Dec 2 2016


Weak frontal boundary has pushed into south FL with drier and cooler
conditions over EC FL this morning as high pressure builds in behind
the front. Morning Cape Canaveral sounding and wind profilers show
northerly winds through lower levels then becoming westerly above
850 mb. May have some passing mid level clouds later but overall a
lot of sunshine across north/central sections today. A few more
clouds expected across the south. Latest short range models are
trending a little farther south with lingering rain near front so
will remove mentionable values over land areas and trim down over
coastal waters. High temperatures range from lower 70s north to
upper 70s/near 80 south. Coastal Volusia may not reach above the
upper 60s due to northeasterly onshore winds and surf temperatures
only in the upper 60s.




.MARINE...No changes to headlines with late morning package.
Today/Tonight...North winds around 15 knots behind the recent
frontal passage will veer northeast tonight and produce choppy
conditions especially in the Gulf Stream. The opposing north winds
will build seas to 6 feet offshore so small craft should exercise
caution. Boating conditions will be poor nearshore with choppy
3-5 foot seas.
