A weak cold front will slowly move south to the Volusia waters by late afternoon and weaken. A much stronger cold front will push south over the waters on Monday. Southwest winds will increase ahead of the front through Sunday night, then shift to west northwest behind the front Monday through Tuesday, then becoming north and northeast through Wednesday. This will bring hazardous boating conditions back to the local waters.

The northern half of our forecast area (Osceola/Brevard northward) observed partly to mostly cloudy skies while to the south, skies were mostly sunny this morning. A few showers were detected by the local Doppler radar over the waters but these have otherwise dissipated or remain very light. For the rest of the day, skies will be variable as a weak boundary/cold front slowly slides south towards our area this evening. A few showers will be possible later this afternoon for northern Lake and Volusia and adjacent waters then focusing towards the waters overnight. Temps today will increase to the upper 70s or lower 80s, making it a few degrees warmer than normal. Winds will be generally light from the west. Then a weak sea breeze will develop south of the Cape this afternoon, shifting winds from the east along the immediate coast first, reaching the interior areas of the coastal counties by late afternoon.
If visiting the local beaches of east central Florida, be mindful of a Moderate Risk of life threatening rip currents today. While rip currents will potentially remain present all day, the risk will be highest between 10am and 3pm due to tidal effects.
West winds from 5 knots near the coast to 15 knots offshore. Sea breeze will shift winds for the nearshore south of the Cape this afternoon but remaining light. Isolated showers possible today and tonight.
