Area Forecast Discussion

.DISCUSSION...High pressure ridge building northeast from the
Mid-Atlantic coast will lead to a strengthening of E/SE winds in
the lower levels. This elevated boundary layer flow will lead to
less favorable conditions for fog development into tonight, with
best potential remaining well inland, northwest of the I-4
corridor across northern Lake and northwest Volusia counties late
tonight. Onshore flow continues to generate a few showers over
the offshore waters and in a convergence induced cloud band off
of Grand Bahama island, but any showers reaching the coast should
remain south of Martin County. Will therefore keep rain chances
out of the forecast for land areas overnight. Milder temperatures
expected into tonight, with lows in the low 60s inland and along
the Volusia Coast to mid-upper 60s along the coast of Brevard
County southward.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR conditions expected through this evening, with
tempo IFR/MVFR conditions in patchy/areas of fog that can develop
over the interior late tonight through early Monday morning. Best
fog potential will exist northwest of the I-4 corridor. After fog
will burn off into Monday morning, with VFR conditions then
expected across the area through the afternoon.

&&

.MARINE...High pressure ridge axis north of the area will lead to
an increasing E/SE wind flow over the waters, up to 10-15 knots
from about Cape Canaveral southward tonight. This will build seas
to 3-4 feet.
