945 PM EDT SUN AUG 28 2016

Deep easterly flow will continue across the region between ridge
extending along the eastern seaboard and newly formed Tropical
Depression 9 (formerly Invest 99L) in the Florida Straights.
Elevated low level winds combined with a moist airmass will
continue to generate scattered showers and isolated storms over
the coastal waters that will move onshore overnight with best rain
chances along the coast. This activity will weaken as it moves
inland but have maintained slight chance PoPs over the interior as
some of these showers may continue to hold together. HRRR/WRF
runs vary in overall coverage through the overnight, but hint at
increasing showers/storms along the Treasure Coast late tonight
where locally heavy rainfall will continue to be possible.

Onshore winds will continue to keep temps above normal overnight
with lows in the mid to upper 70s, except low 80s along portions
of the immediate coast, mainly south of the Cape.


.AVIATION...Tempo IFR/MVFR conditions will be possible with
onshore moving showers and isolated storms. Best potential for
these conditions will be along the coast overnight, as any showers
or storms will weaken as they move inland.


.MARINE...Easterly winds up to 10-15 knots will persist over the
waters between ridge to the north and newly formed Tropical
Depression 9 in the Florida Straights. Combination of wind chop
and incoming long period swell will produce seas around 3-4 feet
nearshore and 4-5 feet offshore.
