Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne FL
1003 AM EST Sat Dec 16 2017

.UPDATE...
A weakening cool front transitioning south of the area is trailing
minimal influence in its wake. Low cloudiness earlier this morning
from Orlando northward is eroding and lifting along the southern
edges of the cloud shield. Expect this to continue and relieve
the area north of I-4 of the considerable cloudiness to become
partly cloudy to partly sunny. Surface winds progressively
shifting out of the northeast as strong high pressure builds over
the Deep South, and slides toward the Seaboard. In short, benign
weather for the rest of the day and overnight. Max Temps U60s
north forecast area and M70s south. Min Temps L50s north/interior
to L60s south/coastal. Dry with no rain expected.

.AVIATION...VFR all sites. Eroding/lifting ceilings BKN050-060
BKN080-090 from KLEE to KDAB should be SCT by 18Z.

&&

.MARINE...A weak cool front will shift south of the area
as high pressure builds in behind. Northerly winds 10-15 knots
this morning will produce choppy seas esp in the Gulf Stream. Then
winds should veer northeast and decrease to around 10 knots this
afternoon. Winds will continue to veer out of the east tonight
with 5-10 knots north and 10 knots south. Seas will range from
1-3 feet.
