NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Melbourne Florida 
345 PM EST Friday Mar 6 2015 


Discussion... 


Currently... 
the cold front has stalled over the southern County Warning Area between Sebastian Inlet 
and the North Shore of Lake Okeechobee...blocked by a weak albeit 
stubborn h100-h70 ridge axis over the northern Bahamas/S Florida Peninsula. 
Aloft...winds through the 850 mb-h30 layer have become parallel to the 
frontal orientation while a strong h30-h20 jet streak extending 
from the lower MS valley to the middle Atlantic coast has been lifting 
slowly east/NE through the day...taking what little dynamic support 
that was present along with it. Even isentropic analysis through 
15kft shows either a neutral or slightly sinking airmass over 
central Florida. 


Average winds through the h100-850 mb layer have diminished below 10kts...S/se 
ahead of the front and west/SW behind it. Surface observation show a shallow 
nearly wind surge impinging on the NE coast of Florida...surge was 
beginning to show up in the komn observation as of middle afternoon. Precipitable water values 
running between 1.25"-1.50" across central Florida...most of which is 
trapped below a Stout frontal inversion in the h100-850 mb layer. 


Sig temperature spread this afternoon as clouds have diminished in the vicinity 
of the frontal boundary...but remain entrenched along and north of the 
I-4 corridor. Maximum temperatures have pushed into the u70s/l80s along the 
Treasure Coast...but linger in the M/u50s along and north of I-4. 
Radar has been picking up the cloud deck through the day...but only 
trace precipitation amounts have been reported. 


Tonight... 
the Post frontal north/NE surge may allow the cold front to advance a 
little further south overnight...but any final push is not 
expected to carry it further than the vicinity of Jupiter Inlet and 
Lake Okeechobee. The surge may allow a few light rain showers to develop 
over the local Atlantic and push onshore...but deep wrly flow above 850 mb 
will prevent any significant inland penetration. Probability of precipitation around 30pct 
coastal zones...20pct interior. Min temperatures will reflect the 
anticipated final frontal position...M/u40s north of I-4...l/m60s 
space and Treasure coasts. 


Saturday... 
west/northwest Post frontal flow over the deep south will keep the boundary S 
of the I-4 corridor...as well as what little surface/low level 
convergence it may generate. Furthermore...cool air advection 
generated by the north/nerly breeze coupled with lingering cloud cover 
will keep maximum temperatures in the in the u60s/l70s along and north of I-4... 
below the convective triggers advertised by the forecast soundings (m70s). 


As such will keep precipitation out of the forecast from Lake Kissimmee-Cape 
Canaveral northward...increasing to 30-40pct S of Sebastian Inlet to 
account for slightly warmer maximum temperatures. Even so...with the lack of 
dynamic support and 850 mb-h70 lapse rates below 5... precipitation 
will be light stratiform in nature with quantitative precipitation forecast below 0.10" 


Sat night-Sun night... 
will keep rain chances across the southern sections Sat evening... 
given some isentropic upglide occurring near the boundary. Highest 
rain chances shift gradually back northward Sunday and Sunday night 
as the frontal boundary retreats back to the north. Higher probability of precipitation 
will be near this boundary with enhanced coastal convergence along 
it. 


Will keep an eye on potential for any localized heavy rainfall areas 
setting up...given the old boundary enhanced by moist low levels and 
onshore flow at the surface below southerly S-SW component in the 
lower levels. As earlier forecast discussion mentioned...see some 
similarities in pattern to last weekend heavy rain along the 
Treasure Coast but enhancement from jet and isentropic lift not 
looking as favorable at this point...but will monitor closely. 


Onshore flow from the NE-east-northeast on Sat will keep maxes from climbing 
above low-middle 70s most areas...and only upper 60s coastal Volusia 
County where surf temperatures are only in the upper 50s. Flow 
veering around more east-southeast on Sunday will allow temperatures to reach 
into the middle-upper 70s most areas...lower 70s immediate Volusia Colorado 
coast. Sat night lows dropping into the low-middle 50s from around I-4 
northward...maybe even upper 40s a few rural interior spots. Onshore 
component influencing remainder of the area should keep mins from 
falling below low-middle 60s. Boundary lifting northward will moderate 
temperatures by Sunday night with lows in l0w/middle 60s area wide. 


Previous extended discussion follows... 


Mon-Thu... 
pattern remains unsettled into next week as boundary lifts back to 
the north of the region on Monday leaving the region under moist 
south-southeast flow through most of the week. Upper level trough 
will deepen across the south central US/far western Gulf...but Florida 
looks to remain more under the influence of western Atlantic 
ridge...both at the surface and aloft. Models show a few weak lows 
developing along the frontal trough in the Gulf to the north which 
may briefly push it back into the region...but overall moist 
onshore flow will be the pattern in place with diurnal enhancement 
due to warm temperatures and sea breeze each afternoon from Tuesday onwards. 


Highs on Monday in the upper 70s and low 80s across most of the 
region with low-middle 70s Volusia coast as boundary lingers around 
this area. Highs remainder of the week generally in the low-middle 80s 
as more southerly component develops with Volusia coast a few 
degrees cooler due to water temperatures. Overnight lows in the middle-upper 
60s.

Marine... 
tonight...cold front S of Sebastian Inlet will stall over the 
Treasure Coast. Data buoy/C-man observation show the fresh nearly breeze has 
just about reached Sebastian Inlet coast...seas at buoy009 up to 
5ft with dominant periods around 5sec. Moderate to fresh nearly surface/boundary 
layer breeze will push S north of Sebastian Inlet overnight...seas 
building to 5-6ft nearshore waters 6-8ft offshore...up to 9 feet in 
the Gulf Stream. Weaker pgrad within the vicinity of the front will 
delay the onset of Small Craft Advisory seas S of Sebastian through late evening...but 
should see sustained winds at or above 20kts areawide by midnight. Small Craft Advisory north of 
Sebastian Inlet through 03z...areawide after. 


Saturday...moderate to fresh north/NE breeze through most of the day... 
slowly diminishing north of Sebastian Inlet as the Post frontal hi pressure 
ridge weakens over the deep south. Seas 5-7ft nearshore and 6-8ft 
offshore...up to 9ft in the Gulf Stream due to the opposing nearly 
breeze/srly current. 


Sat night-sun...stalled frontal boundary near southern waters will 
keep a tighter gradient/higher seas across southern marine legs... 
where Small Craft Advisory will continue into Sunday morning. Winds veer to easterly 
10-15kts over all legs by Sun afternoon as boundary lifts back to 
the north. Seas subsiding to 4-6 feet daytime Sunday. 


Mon-Wed...(previous) old frontal boundary lifts back to the north of 
the region as area remains under the influence of ridge sliding out 
into the western Atlantic. South-southeast winds around 10kts 
expected to be in place through middle week. Seas 3-4ft...with up to 5 
feet on Monday.
