.UPDATE...

...High Risk of Rip Currents Today...

Some enhanced low level moisture will work northwest toward the
northern interior around the Atlantic ridge this afternoon which
should be supportive of low shower chances. Visible satellite trends
indicate little cumulus for the southern Treasure Coast and just
offshore so will be able to lower rain chances south of Ft Pierce
along the coast below mentionable range. Otherwise little change to
current forecast with highs in the lower 80s coastal to mid 80s
interior. A longer period ENE swell will produce a high risk of rip
currents at east central Florida beaches.

&&

.AVIATION...
Some MVFR Cigs/Isold -SHRA will move from KTIX-KDAB corridor and
transition inland this afternoon. Otherwise...will see scattered
cumulus in the KVRB-KSUA corridor along the coast with ESE/SE winds
around the Atlc ridge.

&&

.MARINE...
No significant changes for cstl waters forecast update with ESE/SE
flow and combined seas up 5-6 ft offshore. Previous, Today-
Tonight...Ridge axis north of the waters will allow E/SE flow to
continue over the waters around 10-15 knots. A combination of short
period wind waves and long period swell will keep seas up to 6 feet
offshore, so will continue exercise caution headlines for these
waters.
