Area Forecast Discussion...updated
National Weather Service Jacksonville FL
830 PM EDT Wed Jun 28 2017

.UPDATE...A few showers have developed over Duval and Nassau
County...have included low POPs there for a few hours...HRRR
has not handled this well...but NAM has suggested this...
decreasing after 06z. Have updated hourly POP/weather grids to
reflect decreased precipitation coverage interior areas...but
have low pops for coastal showers affecting coastal counties
this evening. Not anticipating hourly coverage to exceed 20 pct.
Otherwise...plenty of high clouds will continue to stream over
forecast area. Current low temp forecast looks good.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR conditions Tonight...except occasional MVFR CIGS
at coastal TAFs along with isolated showers possible this evening.
Potential for MVFR CIGS to develop after dawn in moist environment.
Could be isolated coastal showers affecting coastal TAF sites in
morning but best chance appears to be KSSI. Held off VCTS until
after 17z...with uncertainty as to amount of shower/storm
coverage around TAF sites leading to just VCTS in 00z TAFs.

&&

.MARINE...No significant changes planned in next CWF issuance.
High pressure along the coast of the mid Atlantic states will
build east tonight through the end of the week. A front will
approach from the northwest this weekend. Headlines are not
expected with combined seas generally 4 ft or less.

Rip Currents: Moderate risk of rip currents through Thursday.
