NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE • MELBOURNE – Weak low pressure has formed north of the Bahamas, drifting to the north. This will generate steady north-northeast breezes over east central Florida today.
Scattered showers and a few storms will push onshore, producing periods of moderate to heavy rain over the coastal counties and light to moderate rain over the interior before diminishing.
Wind gusts may reach 25-30 mph across the barrier islands later today, especially north of Sebastian Inlet. Beach and boating conditions will be quite hazardous.
Small Craft Advisories are in effect. The beaches will experience rough surf, dangerous rip currents & long shore currents. Minor beach erosion may also occur around the times of high tide.
