Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne FL
927 AM EDT Wed Apr 24 2019

.DISCUSSION...
Mostly clear this morning across east central Florida with just a
few high cirrus clouds moving in from the northwest. By this
afternoon it will be mostly sunny to party cloudy and dry. High
temps will reach the mid to upper 80s across the interior, though
coastal areas will only get into the low 80s due to the east
breeze. Tonight looks to be dry again, as temps drop into the
upper 50s inland to low 60s along the coast.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions will prevail today. Could see a FEW to SCT040-050
deck develop along the coast late this morning and push inland
this afternoon with light east winds.

&&

.MARINE...
High pressure will continue to build across the western Atlantic
resulting in light onshore winds around 10 knots this afternoon
with seas 2-3 feet. Tonight, offshore seas will increase to 3-4
feet with east winds around 10-12 knots, though nearshore
conditions will be seas of 2-3 feet with south to southwest wind
of 5-10 knots.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...
A weak high pressure ridge over Florida will shift east into the
Atlantic through late week as a surface cool front approaches, and
then moves through east central Florida Friday afternoon and
evening. The front will be preceded by scattered to numerous
showers and lightning storms.

Expect fair to good dispersion the next two days, then increasing
significantly on Friday as south-southwest surface and transport
winds increase ahead of an approaching system that will bring rain
to the area.
