BREVARD COUNTY • NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Observations from Tuesday morning show that the strongest winds are along the barrier islands from the Cape south through Jupiter Inlet where sustained winds are around 30-35 mph with gusts around 40-45 mph.
High tide today will be around noon and this is the most likely time for coastal areas, and those along the Intracoastal Waterway, to experience flooding due to a combination of strong winds, surge, and higher than normal astronomical tides.
On the Space Coast, rain bands will increase in frequency across the area today as the center of Hurricane Dorian makes its closet approach Tuesday night into Wednesday.
These bands will contain wind gusts of 40-50 mph and heavy rainfall.
