Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Jacksonville FL
952 AM EST Fri Feb 24 2017

.UPDATE...
Low stratus and fog across most parts of northeast FL will erode
over the next couple of hours on low level northeasterly flow.
High pressure north of the area will slowly move east providing
for northeast and then easterly flow. Winds will be 10-15 mph or
less. After stratus dissipates...sct-bkn fair wx cumulus should
form with daytime heating and given the adequate low level
moisture content. 12z JAX sounding shows we will reach the upper
70s to lower 80s today and current forecast looks good with little
change expected.
