...Rip Currents Still a Hazard at the Beaches...

Currently-Today...Early morning visible satellite imagery showed
smoke emanating from wildfires in eastern Seminole county and along
the Orange/Brevard county line, affecting local sections of I-95 in
north Brevard as well as the Beach Line near the St. Johns River.
Recent imagery along with traffic cameras showed that the smoke,
which was trapped beneath the early morning low level temperature
inversion, was mixing out and improving visibility.

Otherwise, weakening high pressure ridge settling over central
Florida will produce light winds and the dry air mass will result in
mostly sunny skies.  High temps will reach the lower 80s along the
coast and mid 80s inland.  A few spots over the interior may reach
87-88 degrees.

Tonight...Any lingering wildfires producing significant smoke could
lead to local visibility problems on some highways again.


High pressure ridge over the area will provide VFR through tonight.
Patchy shallow ground fog is possible overnight.  Significant
visibility restrictions will be possible near any wildfires.


Today-Tonight...Good boating conditions with light/variable winds
due to weak high pressure over the area.  Lingering east swells
could produce rough conditions near inlets during the outgoing tide
this afternoon.
