Today - Tonight
NWPS is doing a better job with wave heigheights over the WNAwave model. As such, we are observing 5-7 ft seas over the Gulf Stream and 4-5 ft seas near shore. Have hoisted a short-fuse Small Craft Advisory for the offshore Brevard/Treasure Coast waters and near shore Treasure Coast waters. Winds also coming in a bit higher than forecast, 15-20 kts with higher gusts across the Gulf Stream. Will take Advisory out to 21Z/4PM, but its possible this could get knocked back down a bit early and even then Cautionary Statements would be likely necessary. Outside of the Advisory will initiate Cautionary Statements for the offshore Volusia waters and near shore Brevard waters to start the next Coastal Waters Forecast. Seas should gradually subside to 3-4 ft near shore overnight and 4-5 ft Gulf Stream. SE/SSE winds will remain elevated 10-15 kts near shore and 14-18 kts offshore tonight.
Friday-Monday...Surface high pressure will begin shifting further seaward across the Atlantic, leading to a local increase in moisture on Friday ahead of a frontal passage by Saturday night. Rain chances increase, with a chance for thunder across the local waters as the front passes, along with local wind gusts near 34KT with storms. Southerly winds between 10 to 20 knots will become westerly behind the front, and increase to 15 to 25 knots. Boating conditions will be unfavorable, with seas 3-5 feet across the local waters before and during the frontal passage. Conditions will further deteriorate behind the front as seas increase to 3-5 feet in the nearshore and 5-8 feet in the offshore waters Sunday into early Monday. Small Craft Advisories may be necessary. By Monday afternoon, winds veer to the north and decrease, with seas gradually subsiding to 2-4 feet in the nearshore and 3-6 feet in the offshore waters. Winds further veer into early next week. Dry conditions will prevail behind the front.
