Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne FL
840 PM EDT Fri Jun 23 2017


Isolated late afternoon showers/storms which developed north of Lake
Okeechobee along sea/lake breeze interface have been drifting north
and weakening, while a few small/brief showers also popped up near/
west of Orlando, but have been quickly weakening. Expect lingering
activity to dissipate around or a little after 900 PM, so figure it
would be best to handle minimal coverage/duration event such as this
with STF/blog updates rather than the ZFP. Plan to update to show a
more optimistic sky cover forecast with skies become clear to mostly
clear toward midnight where they aren`t already. Mins in the L-M70s
under a light SE drift.


.AVIATION...Isold convection south of MCO and inland from the coastal
corridor should dissipate by 02z-03Z. 00Z TAF package showed late
afternoon (20Z-24Z) VCTS for the interior aerodromes and VCSH 17Z-20Z
for TIX-DAB.


.MARINE...Current buoy obs show a light to moderate SE to SSE breeze
around 10KT with seas running about 2.0 to 2.5FT, which is a solid
foot to foot and half below wave model guidance. Plan to cap values
off at 3FT for the overnight, as there shouldn`t be enough nocturnal
wind enhancement to allow the wind chop to push seas as high as 4FT.





RADAR/IMPACT WX...Sedlock is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
