Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne FL
958 AM EDT Sun Aug 12 2018

.UPDATE...
Today-Tonight...Early to mid afternoon initiation of convection
expected once again today with W/SW flow across the eastern
peninsula. Morning showers and isolated storms are confined to the
Gulf Coast but will build eastward through the day. SW flow will
limit the east coast sea breeze from pushing inland, thus a
collision will occur along the coast. Local models in agreement on
an eastward collision but reflect a slight difference in coverage;
lowered PoPs to chance over the interior as a result. General storm
motion will be to the east/northeast at 10 to 15 mph with frequent
lightning and gusty winds up to 50 mph. Earlier start to convection
should end most development near sunset.

Another hot afternoon with highs inland in the low 90s potentially
climbing higher along the coast depending on sea breeze and
convective initiation.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR this morning with early afternoon start to
convection. SW flow should confine the sea breeze to the coast,
leading to boundary collisions along the coast. Highest storm
coverage expected for coastal terminals as storms move northeast
across the state.

&&

.MARINE...
Today-Tonight...Light SW flow through early afternoon before a shift
in the nearshore waters to E with the development of the east coast
sea breeze. Thunderstorms in the mid afternoon should remain along
the immediate coast and push offshore through sunset. Mariners
should keep an eye to the skies for quickly approaching storms from
the SW. Flat nearshore waters build to 1-2 ft over the Gulf
Stream.

&&

.HYDROLOGY...
No sites along the Saint Johns river are at or above Flood Stage,
with Astor, Sanford and Lake Harney forecast points remaining in
Action Stage. Refer to the latest Hydrologic Statements (RVSMLB)
for the latest stage and forecast information.
