.UPDATE...MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES THIS EVENING WITH EASTERLY WINDS DUE
TO SEABREEZE MOVING WELL INLAND. SEABREEZE HAS RAISED DEWPOINTS SO
LOW TEMPERATURES WILL BE A FEW DEGREES ABOVE LAST NIGHTS RECORD
LOW VALUES. READINGS SHOULD FALL INTO THE UPPER 60S INLAND AND
LOWER 70S NEAR THE COAST. MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE ON
FRIDAY WITH THE RETURN OF ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS
EXPECTED BY AFTERNOON.

A PERIOD OF MVFR VISIBILITIES IS POSSIBLE AT VQQ FROM 09Z-12Z...
BUT CONFIDENCE WAS NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO INCLUDE IN THE EVENING
TAFS. ONLY ISOLATED TO WIDELY SCATTERED AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP NEAR THE INLAND TERMINALS ON
FRI...BUT CONFIDENCE IN TIMING AND INTENSITY WAS NOT HIGH ENOUGH
TO INCLUDE MORE THAN VCTS AT GNV AND VCSH AT JAX AND VQQ. THE
ATLANTIC SEA BREEZE WILL INCREASE SUSTAINED ONSHORE SURFACE WINDS
UP TO NEAR 10 KNOTS AT SSI AND CRG AFTER 16Z.
