...Additional Beach Erosion and Minor Coastal Flooding With High Tide Tonight and Tuesday
Current...A tight NE gradient has allowed for windy conditions across ECFL today. The pressure gradient has been tighter across the northern sections and a little "wider" towards the southern part of the state, allowing for slightly stronger winds and wind gusts along the Volusia and Brevard coasts that spread inland through the afternoon. Scattered showers have been pushing quickly to the southwest through this afternoon.

Tonight-Tomorrow...By this evening, only lingering activity is expected as drier air makes its way across the peninsula from the north, with forecasted Global PW values (Precipitable Water values) of 1.05-1.20 inches. Probability of Precipitation drop after 8 PM, with only scattered chance of Gulf Stream showers possible through the overnight period and into the early morning hours along the coast and across northern Lake and Volusia counties. By tomorrow afternoon there will be a slight chance of rain everywhere except southwestern Lake, eastern Osceola, and Okeechobee counties. Conditions will remain breezy/gusty tonight esp along the coast. Winds not quite as strong tomorrow but still 15-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.

Temperatures will be slightly cooler than normal for this time of year, with highs hovering in the low to mid 80s tomorrow with overnight temperatures in the upper 60s low 70s tonight.

Wednesday...Dry pattern will continue for Wednesday, as the pressure gradient weakens further supporting 10-15 mph winds. Rain chances are less than 20 percent and will not mention in the forecast. Max temps in the mid 80s. Lows in the mid to upper 60s interior but holding in the lower 70s along the coast due to persistent onshore flow off warm sea surface temps. Large, long period swells will continue to impact the surf zone so have extended the High Surf Advisory through Wednesday along with a High Risk of rip currents.

Thursday-Weekend (previous)...Higher Probability of Precipitation begin to return on Thursday, as the high pressure shifts further eastward into the Atlantic. With winds shifting to SE on the western periphery of the high, moist air will be ushered back in as PWATs (Precipitable Waters) over 2" return by Saturday. Thus, increasing Probability of Precipitation into the weekend, with 20-40% from north to south on Thursday becoming 50-60% for the weekend. High temperatures will also rebound back into the upper 80s/lower 90s, while lows remain in the low to mid 70s.

Marine
Tonight-Tomorrow...The Gale Warning will be allowed to expire at 4pm, with a Small Craft Advisory replacing it, going out until 8pm on Wednesday. Winds will be NE around 25 KT with occasional gusts to gale force possible this evening. Tomorrow, winds will be ENE around 20 KT with gusts up to 25 KT. Distant Hurricane Teddy will keep wave heigheights 9-11 ft nearshore and 12-13 ft offshore waters with a dominate period of 13 seconds. "Teddy" will continue to produce high surf with additional beach erosion and minor coastal flooding through tomorrow. Water levels on the intracoastal waters will also rise with localized flooding adjacent to the river/lagoon.

Wednesday - Thursday
High pressure over the eastern U.S. slides southward towards the local area and the pressure gradient eases. Onshore E/SE flow will continue, but further decrease to 10-15kts for Wednesday and Thursday. Despite the drop in wind speeds, seas will remain elevated through the period. Wave heigheights 10-13ft for Tuesday will subside to 9-12ft on Wednesday, then 7-9ft for Thursday. As a result, have extended the Small Craft Advisory, High Surf Advisory and High Risk of rip currents through Wednesday afternoon.

High Tides Tonight Tuesday

Hydrology
The Saint Johns River at Astor is forecast to remain in Moderate Flood, before very slowly decreasing. The Saint Johns River above Lake Harney has reached Action Stage, and is forecast to remain steady in Action Stage through this week. The river is forecast to reach Action Stage at Sanford and Deland in the next couple days. Northeast winds and high astronomical tides are combining to prevent normal discharge on the Saint Johns River. Refer to Flood Statements from NWS Melbourne for the river levels and forecasts near Astor and Lake Harney, which will be updated daily while the points remain in flood stage.
