.AVIATION...
Slow moving showers and scattered thunderstorms have developed

conditions and gusty winds are possible under the heaviest
showers, otherwise VFR will prevail. Activity may spread into the
KAPF vicinity later today. Showers expected to diminish after
sunset.

UPDATE...
Deep-layered high pressure is anchored off the Atlantic coast of
Florida this morning. Light southeasterly flow and weak sea breeze
circulations are expected today. Drier air will again help limit
overall coverage, but high resolution guidance is hinting that
activity has a better chance of impacting the major population
areas today compared to previous days. Thunderstorms could produce
gusty winds, heavy rain, and lightning. The thermal profile aloft
is not conducive for hail today but small hail is possible with
a strong storm.

The primary threat for today is the heat index values that will
reach into the mid 100s. Anyone outdoors should stay hydrated and
take frequent cooling breaks to fight off heat illness. The light
flow and humid surface airmass over the region are contributing
factors to the high heat index values.

The forecast appears to be in good order and no changes are
expected with this update.
