.DISCUSSION...

...Windy Over the Treasure Coast-Lake Okeechobee Regions Today...

...Strong Cold Front To Move Across Central Florida Sunday Night...

Rest of Today...No changes made to the current forecast.
Temperatures will warm into the mid to upper 70s across east
central Florida. Breezy along the coast, winds 15-20mph with gusts
up to 25 mph, owing to the Lake Wind Advisory from Brevard County
south to Martin County, including Okeechobee County. Marine
stratocumulus clouds continue to stream onshore, so periods of
mostly cloudy skies in between clearer conditions expected along
the coast. Inland counties will mostly be partly cloudy through
the day. KMLB Doppler radar tracking isolated very light sprinkles
from the Cape south, no accumulation expected.

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions prevail. Breezy conditions along the coast from
KMLB south to KSUA with sustained east-southeast winds 15-20 knots
and gusts up to 25 knots through this afternoon.

Rest of Today-tonight...Current forecast is on track, made no
changes from previous. Still have gusty east-southeast winds that

and up to 9 feet offshore and in the Gulf Stream. Hazardous
boating conditions continue, and Small Craft Advisory remains in
