Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne FL
947 PM EDT Thu Apr 19 2018

.UPDATE...
A weak front analyzed across north Florida will sag down the
peninsula overnight, reaching the Interstate 4 corridor after
midnight and Osceola/Brevard counties by sunrise. No precipitation
is expected with the boundary as near-surface convergence remains
weak and moisture pooling looks limited. Sprawling high pressure
building over the eastern third of the nation will bring a surge
of northeast winds behind the front, but not until near or just
after sunrise Friday.

Light winds and clear skies ahead of the front suggest a chance
for fog development in our more susceptible areas (rural and in
the vicinity of lakes and rivers). Still, prospects look low
considering the airmass remains quite dry.

&&

.AVIATION...
Generally VFR. There is a low chance of fog across the Space and
Treasure Coast terminals (KMLB-KFPR) toward sunrise. A front will
sag down the peninsula overnight with an uptick in northeast
winds expected after sunrise Friday, becoming gusty especially
north and west of KMLB.

&&

.MARINE...
Tonight/Friday...Light offshore winds expected overnight before
the passage of a frontal boundary late tonight. A surge of
northeast winds is expected to spread down the coastal waters
beginning Friday morning, leading to increasingly choppy seas and
gusty winds. Small Craft Advisories are scheduled to go into
effect from north to south.
