    Scattered showers with heavy downpours will affect areas of east central Florida from South Lake County...Metro Orlando and Canaveral to the Treasure Coast and Okeechobee through late afternoon or early evening. A few lightning storms will also occur...especially across southern Osceola and Brevard counties to near Vero Beach and Fort Pierce. The showers and storms moving across the coast could become a hazard for mariners with gusts near 35 knots. Local rainfall amounts around 2 inches are also possible. Northern sections from Volusia County to North Lake County will have scattered showers through late afternoon with a few producing brief downpours.

Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Areal Flood Watch  Statement as of 3:50 am EDT on September 30, 2014


... Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* east central Florida... including the following areas... Lake...
Orange... Seminole... Volusia... Osceola... Brevard...
Indian River... St. Lucie... Martin and Okeechobee.

* Through this evening

* deep moisture and an approaching frontal boundary will allow
numerous showers and thunderstorms to develop across east
central Florida this afternoon. Showers and storms are expected
to produce heavy rainfall amounts of two to three inches with
some locations seeing higher amounts where storms move over the
same areas. The heaviest rainfall amounts may occur from lake
and Volusia counties south to Osceola and Brevard counties including
the Orlando area this afternoon. The threat for locally heavy
rainfall is expected to continue into early evening as the
frontal boundary moves south toward Osceola and Brevard
counties. Across Okeechobee County and the Treasure Coast
showers and storms with locally heavy rain will move eastward
toward the coast from mid to late afternoon into the early
evening hours with additional heavy rain amounts up to two to
three inches.

* Additional heavy rainfall will bring the potential for flooding
to roadways... and low-lying and poor drainage areas. Areas that
have received heavy rainfall over the past week will be
especially vulnerable to flooding should heavy rain develop.
Smaller creeks and rivers already at elevated levels may see
rapid rises of water with any heavy rainfall leading to the
potential for flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor the latest forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers roadways.
The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Melbourne Florida 
943 am EDT Tuesday Sep 30 2014 


Discussion... 


..Flood Watch continues in effect into this evening... 
..Locally heavy rain likely with showers and storms again today... 


Current-this afternoon...radars detecting showers moving west to 
east in the eastern Gulf of Mexico coming ashore between Tampa and 
Cedar Key. Water vapor satellite imagery showing drier middle and upper 
level air mass reaching south to roughly a Cape Canaveral to 
Sarasota line. The 30/12z soundings from Tallahassee and 
Jacksonville show a much drier air mass above 500mb...Tampa heading 
that way while Miami was still very wet through the column. Closed 
1007mb low analyzed east of Jacksonville. Associated front...based 
on buoy observation/twc analysis...just north of east central Florida. 


Whatever northwest tilt to the middle level/500mb flow there was 
earlier flattens during the day per latest RUC/GFS runs. 


The southward progress of the front may slow down as the flow aloft 
flattens. Main problem looks to be training showers/storms south of 
the front over already very soggy/saturated land. 


Current 70 north 60 south pop looks good given the very wet air mass 
ahead of the front and middle level impulses moving west to east over 
central Florida during the day. Like Monday...late afternoon early 
evening storms for the east side of the peninsula a good bet. 


Previous zones discussion 


Today...a slow moving front will move southeast toward lake and 
Volusia counties into middle day and through the Orlando metropolitan and 
northern Brevard County into the late afternoon and toward southern Brevard 
County and Osceola County toward early evening. The frontal boundary 
will provide a focus for showers and storms with locally heavy rain 
again today...mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours. 
Deep moisture will continue across east central Florida with precipitable 
water values around two inches. Weaker impulses are prognosticated in the 
middle level westerly flow but should still be sufficient to aid in 
convective development espec near the approaching low level frontal 
boundary across the northern half of the forecast area. One concern for 
today is that showers and storms may train from west to east with 
the middle layer flow almost parallel to the approaching front sliding 
south. Another concern is that the areas that will likely 
see the heaviest rainfall today are those same areas that have seen 
abundant rainfall over the past week or so...generally from Osceola 
and Brevard County northward to lake/Volusia counties including the 
Orlando metropolitan. Have raised probability of precipitation to 70 percent from Osceola and Brevard 
northward and will keep 60 percent across the far south. Highs will be 
in the middle-upper 80s north and upper 80s to near 90 around Lake 
Okeechobee. 


Tonight...will indicate highest evening probability of precipitation from Lake County into 
the Orlando area and southeast into Brevard where the low level frontal 
boundary should provide a focus for showers and a few storms into 
the evening hours. After midnight will keep a slight shower chance 
over land but most of the rainfall should have ended. Lows in the 
lower 70s. 


Wed-Thu...the previous weak frontal boundary will slide slowly south 
of central Florida on Wednesday but will be close enough in proximity 
along with ample deep layer moisture to spark at least a 50 percent 
chance of afternoon convection across east central Florida. Moisture 
remains abundant into Thursday and with periodic middle-level impulses 
embedded in the near zonal flow aloft should still warrant chance 
wording for afternoon showers/storms especially southward. The 
pressure gradient will be fairly weak both days with the East Coast 
sea breeze providing an additional focus for storm development. 
Steering flow for cells remains from the west to the east so any 
activity over the interior during the afternoon/early evening could 
work back towards the East Coast late in the day. Locally heavy 
rainfall will be possible with nuisance flooding possible across 
areas that have seen recent heavy rainfall totals. 


Fri-Mon...upper troughiness across the eastern Continental U.S. Will help push 
another front into North Florida late on Friday and then through 
central Florida on Sat. By sun this boundary will lie across South 
Florida and the Florida Straits. Moisture will again pool along and 
ahead of this boundary. An East Coast sea breeze boundary will 
develop and move slightly inland again on Friday but the deep-layer 
westerly flow on Sat will likely inhibit development. Model guidance 
suggests between a 40 and 50 percent chance of convection for each 
of these days ahead of the front with drier conditions for both 
sun/Mon. Any precipitation late in the weekend (sun) or for the 
start of next week (mon) will be confined along the Treasure Coast 
and southward...mainly in the afternoon where residual moisture may 
be greatest. 


&& 


Aviation... 
MVFR tempo IFR kism-kmlb north. VFR tempo MVFR/IFR south of 
kism-kmlb this morning as stratus moves through. Prevailing MVFR 
this afternoon tempo IFR in/near rain showers/thunderstorms and rain through sunset. 


Previous aviation discussion 
early morning stratus will affect northern terminals through around 12z 
with some IFR ceilings. Frontal boundary moving southeast toward northern terminals by 
middle day into the afternoon will bring with it rain showers/thunderstorms and rain chances and 
SW/west winds becoming northwest/north behind the boundary and NE late for 
kdab/klee. Will indicate highest rain chances from 16z-23z with 
tempo rain showers for most terminals. 


&& 


Marine... 
current-this afternoon...nearshore buoys recording southwest to west 
winds 10 to 15 knots. The buoy 120nm east of New Smyrna Beach was 
record southwest around 15 knots. All the buoys were recording 2 to 
3 foot seas. 


Southwest to west winds 10 to 15 knots nearshore and around 15 knots 
well offshore ahead of a slow moving front this afternoon. Seas 
remain 2 to 3 feet. 


No significant changes for the marine forecast update. 


Previous marine discussion 
offshore winds will become northerly across the northern waters tonight 
but not to strong up to around 10 knots. Seas 2-3 feet near shore and 
3-4 feet well offshore. 


Wed-Sat...the frontal boundary will slowly move south of the coastal 
waters on Wednesday with a daily sea breeze expected each day through Friday. 
Another front will drop into the area on Sat. Light offshore winds 
will likely develop each night with the weak pressure gradient in 
place and onshore flow developing each afternoon through Friday from sea 
breeze formation. Wind speeds at or below 15 kts. Deeper westerly flow on 
Sat likely to inhibit sea breeze development on this day. Westerly 
steering flow for storms over land will continue through the period 
with the realistic threat for afternoon/evening storms to move over 
the intracoastal and near shore waters of the western Atlantic. 
Ample moisture continues over the area with a 40 to 50 percent 
chance of afternoon/evening storms. Seas 2-3 feet...except possibly 
some 4 feet seas returning and well offshore on Sat. Primary threats 
to small craft boating from storms remain cloud to water 
lightning....gusty winds...torrential downpours and locally higher 
seas. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
St Johns River at Astor continues slightly above flood stage at 
Astor with water levels also rising near Deland and Lake Harney... 
may approach or reach action stage later this week. Shingle Creek 
has also been on the rise to within a half foot of action stage at 
Campbell this morning. Will continue to monitor with the possible 
need for a short fuse flood statement or warning in this area late 
today should heavy rain develop over the Shingle Creek basin.
