926 AM EDT Mon Sep 25 2017

.UPDATE...

Hurricane Maria well east northeast of the area will continue
moving northward away from our area. Our area will be the
beneficiary of a relatively dry airmass due to strong subsidence
west of the hurricane. Light pressure gradient across our area
with relatively light northerly winds at the surface. Due to a
full day of ample sunshine, temperatures today will average above
normal.

&&

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions will continue.

&&

.MARINE...

Advisory conditions will continue mainly due to seas with swells
from Hurricane Maria. Advisory conditions will continue longer for
the offshore marine zones as swells keep seas elevated there
until midweek.

Rip Currents: High rip current risk today due to long period
swells from Maria. High Surf Advisory today for ne Florida
beaches due to breakers up to 8 feet.

&&

the St. Johns River basin as onshore winds keep water levels
elevated. Minor flooding with moderate flooding at a few spots
