Nowcast

  • Now as of 5:45 PM EDT on July 23, 2014

    Dry air aloft has combined with extensive upper level cloud cover to limit overall atmospheric instability this afternoon. As a result...despite good inland penetration of both the east and West Coast sea breezes...shower and thunderstorm coverage has been isolated across central Florida. Additional storms will develop over the interior counties through sunset..but total coverage will remain isolated. Any storms that do develop will move northeast around 10 mph and will be capable of generating local heavy rain.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Melbourne Florida 
236 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Discussion... 
current-tonight...the upper level low and associated troughing over 
southern Mississippi and the Louisiana Delta Region and the north 
central Gulf of Mexico lifts north and is absorbed by another trough 
moving over the southeast United States. The troughing keeps surface 
high pressure suppressed to the southeast over the Bahama Islands 
and South Florida. The resulting south to southwest flow will 
continue to feed warm moist Gulf of Mexico air into central Florida. 
Another warm night with Thursday morning lows in the low and middle 
70s. Little or no wind will make it feel even more muggy toward 
sunrise. 


Thu-Fri...the upper level trough remains over the southeast U.S. And 
keeps high pressure to the west...over the Southern Plains and to 
the east...over southern Florida and the Bahama island. Deep layered 
and warm moist south to southwest flow ahead/east of the troughing 
will continue to help feed warm moist Gulf of Mexico air into/over 
central Florida both day. Middle and upper level support for storms 
remains well north. Convection will be mesoscale initiation such as 
sea and lake breezes interacting with each other and other outflow 
boundaries from ongoing storms. Slow moving heavy rain storms and 
showers will cause excessive accumulations of rainwater on roads and 
low lying spots. 


Highs both days in the low 90s away from the coast and the upper 80s 
and around 90 at the coast and beaches. 


Previous extended zones discussion 
weekend...trough aloft over the southeast states will weaken so 
deep layer ridge should nudge back a little to the north. A light 
southwest steering flow is still indicated though. MOS probability of precipitation 
continue low...around 30 percent but the GFS shows a ribbon of 
higher moisture across the area...so will continue to go with probability of precipitation 
close to climatology...40-50 percent. 


Monday-next Wednesday...a return of the rather amplified pattern aloft is 
indicated. This will shunt the deep layer ridge back southward and 
produce a deep layer southwest flow. The GFS suggests drier air 
working in Monday into Tuesday...quite a bit in fact...with the 00z run 
knocking precipitable water below 1.5 inches. This lowers MOS probability of precipitation 
to 20-30 percent Monday. 


While getting some of this drying aloft...which is clearly evident 
on water vapor over the Atlantic...is reasonable...we are not sure 
that it will nearly completely overwhelm the ribbon of higher 
moisture that has been over the area recently. With an otherwise 
favorable synoptic pattern for higher East Coast storm coverage... 
will keep probability of precipitation at 30-40 percent through this period. Moistening 
ahead of frontal trough over the deep south could even boost probability of precipitation 
higher by Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation... 
all taf sites currently VFR. Tempo MVFR first at the coast then 
spreading inland taf sites by late afternoon as convection finally 
gets going. VFR after 02z-04z time frame. Few-scattered below flow fl010 
approx 10z-14z or until the lowest layers mix out with daytime 
heating Thursday morning. 




&& 


Marine... 
current-tonight... 
National oceanic and atmospheric administration buoy 009 was recording southeast winds less than 5 knots and 
2 foot seas. Buoy 010 at 120nm offshore was recording westerly 
winds around 15 knots due to convection/storms over the Gulf 
Stream to the west and 4 foot seas. The two scripps buoys at 4nm 
and 6nm off the beach were recording 2 foot seas. High pressure 
ridge axis to the south yields south to southwest winds 10 knots 
or less. Sea 2 to 3 feet well offshore and 1 to 2 feet nearshore. 


Thu-Fri...axis of Atlantic surface ridge will stay to the south. 
Persistence forecast with prevailing light south to southwest winds. 
Winds shift onshore in the afternoon as the daily sea breezes form 
and push westward. 


Previous extended marine discussion 
weekend...the axis of the Atlantic surface ridge should nudge back 
towards central Florida Sat but there does not look to be much 
change in the south/southwest flow pattern. Enough southwest 
steering flow should continue for afternoon/evening storms to 
push back across the coast.
