326 AM EST Sat Nov 25 2017

A light northerly drainage flow over the region during the overnight
hrs with the low level moisture in place will allow for areas of fog
that develop over Central Florida to gradually filter into South
FL tonight. The Lake region and interior counties will see patchy to
areas of fog through the morning hrs before burning off after sunrise.
Although no advisory has been issued at this time, if visibility
worsen an advisory may be issued for a few hours. Drive with
caution as areas along the interior counties could see some
pockets of dense fog with very low visibility.

Drier air will continue to move into South Florida as high pressure
builds over the region. No significant change in temperatures is
expected as cooler air remains further north. High temperatures will
remain near normal with highs in the low 80s and lows from the upper
50s across the northwestern interior sections to upper 60s across
the east coast metro areas.

On Sunday, a reinforcing cold front moves through the region with
very limited low level moisture. Models suggest less chance of rain
as it moves through the region, therefore, lower pops Sunday into
Monday. Drier and cooler air mass will remain in place through the
early portion of next week. Models continue to suggest an increase
in low level moisture by mid week with a more easterly flow across
the area. The chance of showers will begin to increase especially
in the southern counties and eastern coast by the end of the week.

By Friday, GFS and ECMWF show another cold front moving across the
state bringing more cooler and drier air into the region. Chance of
showers will be possible with the fropa before quickly diminishing
as surge of dry air makes it across the region. Expect pleasant
weather to continue through the period.


Benign weather pattern is expected through much of the period with
north to northeast flow gradually becoming more easterly by mid week
with high pressure building over the region. Boundary over the FL
Straits will gradually drift north increasing the chance of showers
over the waters by mid week. Another cold front will move across the
region by the end of the week with a tighter pressure gradient
increasing north winds over the waters with building seas up to 10
ft Friday with possible SCEC to SCA criteria.


VFR and light wind generally expected through the period. Some
morning patches of fog are possible, particularly at APF, later
this morning. Otherwise, the only other possible issue could be
brief MVFR cigs over the next few hours.
