.UPDATE...
Sfc high pressure over the coastal mid Atlantic states will slowly
shift northeastward into the Atlantic overnight as coastal trough
develops over our adjacent coastal waters. Increasing onshore flow
will continue to advect low level moisture across the area and
allow for isolated light shower activity in coastal areas tonight
into tomorrow morning. Precip chances will spread from coastal northeast
Florida tonight into southeast Georgia by early tomorrow morning
as coastal trough shifts northward along the southeast Atlantic
coast. Increasing stratus is expected to overspread the area
through morning. Temperatures dropping off relatively quickly
after sunset will slow as cloud cover increases. Low temps across
interior southeast Georgia and the Suwannee Valley are expected to
drop into the upper 30s to low 40s as clouds will take longer to
reach these areas. Coastal and southern areas will moderate into
the upper 40s to low 50s overnight.

&&

.AVIATION...
Low ceilings will continue to pivot northward tonight as a coastal
trough breaks down and drifts NNW tonight. A low MVFR deck that
impacted VQQ and SGJ this evening was drifting farther west with
ceilings to the southeast generally VFR with periods of MVFR. For
the 00Z TAF package initialized with prevailing VFR with cigs
around 3.5-4 kft persisting through much of the night but do
expect periods of MVFR. Breezy NE winds will persist across
coastal terminals with gusts up to 20 kts at times this
evening...then winds will veer ESE and decrease through the night.

&&

.MARINE...
Onshore winds will persist through Sunday remaining between 15-20
mph as coastal trough develops along the southeast Atlantic coast
overnight tonight warranting exercise caution wording in the near
and offshore waters for the overnight period. As trough lifts
northward and moves onshore winds will come down to 10-15 mph and
shift to the southeast throughout the day on Sunday.

Rip Currents: Moderate risk of rip currents is expected on Sunday.
