.UPDATE...
12Z sounding this morning showed precipitable water values
remaining near 2 inches. A stalled frontal boundary was located
east/west across north central Florida, and isolated showers were
near the boundary. A waterspout is possible near this boundary
this morning. Isolated to scattered showers are possible for the
east coast mainly this morning, with scattered showers and storms
possible for the interior and west this afternoon (mainly south of
I-10 and west of Highway 301). East to northeast onshore flow
will increase today, with breezy winds 15-20 mph along the coast
this afternoon. Onshore flow and mostly cloudy skies will lead to
temperatures in the low to mid 80s for coastal areas, and mid to
upper 80s inland. The Gulf coast sea breeze may not develop, and
models have been trending lower with rain chances this afternoon
due to lower instability from cloud cover. So, cut back PoPs
across the interior and western portions of northeast Florida to
30-50%, with 10-30% across southeast Georgia.

.AVIATION...
IFR/LIFR cigs at KGNV will lift this morning. VFR conditions are

along the east coast. Showers are possible this morning into the
early afternoon, with scattered showers and storms possible near
KGNV in the mid to late afternoon. Winds will diminish to 5 knots
or below away from the coast overnight.
