A small low pressure area near the coast of southern Brevard county was generating a cluster of showers over the Atlantic waters. While most of this activity is expected to remain offshore, there is a small chance for showers and lightning storms to form over land areas, mainly south of Orlando to the Treasure Coast and Lake Okeechobee.
A weak area of low pressure was causing a breezy onshore wind flow across Brevard county. This generated an area of scattered showers over the adjacent Atlantic waters. A few downpours were pushing into the coast and gradually inland.
A chance for showers will exist along the Brevard coast into the afternoon. Some local heavy downpours will occur. The showers should continue to gradually build inland towards metro Orlando, where a slight chance for lightning storms is in the forecast.
A nearly stationary frontal boundary extends out into the Atlantic offshore Indian River county. Scattered showers and embedded storms will mostly stay over the Atlantic but some of the showers will push onshore the Brevard and Indian River coasts this morning, bringing a brief heavy downpour. A very small circulation is evident on radar imagery along the Indian River county coast early this morning, moving slowly toward the north northwest. Banding features around this meso low may bring more prolonged heavy rain and rumbles of thunder to a portion of the coast between Melbourne Beach and Wabasso through mid morning.
