920 AM EDT Wed Jul 26 2017

...LOCALIZED FLOODING POSSIBLE OVER PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST GEORGIA
THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...
...STRONG THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE ALONG I-10 CORRIDOR LATE THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING...

.UPDATE...
No changes to ongoing forecast as mid level trof and deep moisture
with PWATS over 2 inches lingers across SE GA and will continue to
support locally heavy rainfall and the widespread cloudiness will
hold down Max Temps in the 80s. Further south of the trof axis
across NE FL airmass is drier with PWATS in the 1.5" to 1.9" range
and this will support more sunshine and hotter MAX temps into the
90 to 95 degree range. The drier airmass will keep afternoon and
evening storms more scattered but storms could be stronger due to
surface heating with strong downburst winds possible. Strong Storm
motion generally from West to East today expect erratic and slow
along the trof axis across inland SE GA which will aid in the
locally heavy rainfall threat.

&&

.AVIATION...
IFR clouds along the coast at SSI/JAX have lifted and dissipated
and expect mainly VFR conds the rest of this morning and early
afternoon until scattered to numerous storms impact the TAF sites
