I watched the radar yesterday. I felt bad for that pocket that got skipped.

another chance tonight and Friday morning:


National Weather Service Melbourne FL
330 PM EDT Thu May 4 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Tonight and Friday...Breezy south winds are ushering moisture
into the region, however surface boundary development is hindered
due to the strength of the winds. The best rain potential locally
looks to be centered over N Central FL with approach of the band
of storms presently over the Eastern Gulf of Mex. It is expected
a general decrease in intensity/coverage should occur as the line
progresses inland from the gulf side this evening and moves over
the area overnight. A few strong storms will be possible with
gusty winds and frequent lightning.

A late season front will sweep over the area beginning Friday
morning preceded by a chance of showers and some embedded storms,
mainly across the southern sections along the Treasure Coast and
Lake Okeechobee in the morning. Rainfall coverage will be less
prevalent across the north where a rather early fropa and airmass
drying will commence. Highs will remain only in the 70s across a
good portion of Central Florida due to the early frontal psg,
with some 80s where rainfall lingers in the AM and early aftn.

Saturday-Sunday...A breezy westerly wind flow will exist across
the area Saturday as front shifts well away from the region and
deep low pressure lingers across the northeast United States.
Offshore winds then decrease slightly into late weekend as high
pressure nudges in to south Florida from the Gulf. Drier air
behind the frontal boundary will keep rain chances out of the
forecast through the weekend. Highs will be cooler than normal in
the upper 70s to low 80s Saturday, then closer to normal in the
low to mid 80s Sunday. Lows will be able to drop into the 50s over
much of the area early each morning.

Monday-Thursday...(Previous Discussion) A mid level ridge across the
Gulf of Mexico will flatten some and move toward the FL peninsula by
Thu. Surface high pressure across the northern Gulf will drift
toward FL into late week. This will set up a dry weather pattern for
early to mid week with light winds in the morning and the east coast
sea breeze moving inland each afternoon. Highs early in the week
will range from the lower 80s coast to mid to upper 80s well inland.
Highs will warm to the mid to upper 80s Wed and upper 80s to around
90 expected by next Thu. Lows in the upper 50s/lower 60s to start
the week will warm to 65-70 by Thu morning.

Four of my rain barrels are pretty full from Tuesday but everything was already wilting today. Hoping for the morning.

Not enough though. Weekend weather looks like commerce-of-chamber like. Dry and cool (relative to Florida).

I was totally amazed to be away in New Zealand, knowing the drought was on, and to come back to find the yard nice and green, no irrigation.  Just enough rain to keep it going.

10% chance each day over the weekend...that means no rain in my world.

Click on the "Monthly Actual" and "12 Months Actual".

Things are pretty bleak in our cocoa/rockledge neighborhood.

Only green lawns are being watered way more than the designated 2 days per week.

It is killing me trying to get our drought tolerant landscape established. Most of what we have put in this year are very drought tolerant but even sunshine mimosa needs supplemental water when getting established.

Luckily one of my hobbies is having a watering hose in one hand and a beer in the other! Job security this time of year! I hate Spring time droughts, rather just sip beer....

Check the radar...all that water to the north of us and none for us...

National Weather Service Melbourne FL
258 PM EDT Sat May 13 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Currently-Tonight...Band of higher moisture associated with frontal
boundary over the eastern Gulf of Mexico will push slowly east as a
mid level shortwave trough sags southeastward across north Florida.
Current slow moving band of pre-frontal convection will continue
to sag through the area into evening. How much coverage we get
overnight is questionable but the HRRR suggests most areas will
receive a shot at rainfall. MOS POPs range from 30-40 percent and
will shade towards 40 percent based on the HRRR.

Sunday...Axis of mid level shortwave trough will cross the area and
deepest moisture will be shunted off the the east and south of the
local area. There should be some lingering moisture from the
associated weakening frontal boundary though, so small POPs will
linger, especially across the south. Max temps don`t look as hot as
they have been recently, mainly upper 80s coast and lower 90s well
inland.

Replace turf grass with native plants that don't need irrigation and synthetic fertilizers or chemicals that can go into our waterways and ocean

Was over at Jerry Hooper's this weekend. A lot of his stuff was showing effects of the drought. For the most part, I have focused all the water lovers near hoses. Ain't too proud to drag around my hose!

Vero airport got 0.45" while I was away this afternoon.  I assume the house got something similar.
