Today we are off to the Space Coast of Florida, and the city of Sebastian, which lies between Melbourne and Vero Beach. I imagine the weather there is going to be quite wonderful, though perhaps a bit toasty. Let’s see if I’m right.
At 10am, ET The east coast of Florida was fairly uniform, with temperatures at 87 in both Melbourne and Vero Beach. The sea breeze was most active on the Gulf side of the Peninsula, but as the afternoon warms up, those storms should become more widespread over the center of the state, if the past couple of days are any indication. Temperatures will top out in the low 90s, though rogue thunderstorms will bring temperatures down with cool outflow.
The thunderstorm activity across the Florida Peninsula has primarily been found inland, allowing for collapsing storms to produce the cool outflows that have been seen along the coast in recent days. High pressure continues to extend from the Gulf of Mexico east across Florida, and local thermal dynamics will continue to provide direction for the weather, with early showers and storms possible, before the daily instability shifts further inland on each of the next two days. A cold front reaching the northern border of Florida will enhance the threat for later in the day storms for Sebastian, as flow will take a more southerly approach.

For a coastal Florida site in the heart of summer, those are some awfully chilly forecasts. Of course, with the random whims of Floridian thunderstorms, who really knows?
