.DISCUSSION...

Current-Wed...Convection pushing out of Lake County westward through
mid evening. Frequent lightning, gusty winds, and heavy downpours
have accompanied storms there this evening. High pressure ridging
will continue to meander over the area thru mid-week. Winds will
diminish toward light/variable to calm, then becoming onshore along
the coast on Wed and points further inland as the ECSB develops and
moves into the interior. Perhaps an isolated shower along the
Treasure Coast overnight and generally dry elsewhere. Shower and
storm chances increasing toward scattered Wed afternoon into the
interior with a late day sea breeze collision over the central
peninsula. Continued weak storm steering flow. This may lead to
localized minor flooding from heavy downpours. Lightning and gusty
winds also remain as hazards.

Overnight lows continue well into the 70s areawide. Max temperatures
on Wed in the L-M90s inland from the coast and near 90F along the
coast. Locations across inland Volusia/northern Lake counties
forecast to have "highest" heat index readings across the area near
107.

&&

.AVIATION...General VFR continues. Thinning clouds overnight
across the interior. Winds becoming light/variable to calm. Light
morning winds Wed becoming onshore in the afternoon as the ECSB
ventures inland. Isolated-widely scattered convection along the
coast Wed afternoon becoming scattered into the interior. Tempo MVFR
in shra`s/tsra`s. Storm steering flow remaining weak.

&&

.MARINE...Overnight-Wed...Surface high pressure ridge axis to remain
in the vicinity of the local coastal waters with continued favorable
small craft boating conditions. Seas remain 1-2 ft areawide. Weak
pressure gradient in place with light evening SERLY flow 5-10 kts
becoming variable north of Sebastian Inlet and speeds generally
around 5 kts. The varying directional wind component here will
gradually become SERLY again practically areawide Wed afternoon with
speeds 6-12 kts. Shower and lightning storm chances widely
scattered.
