the afternoon with scattered storms forming and pushing back towards
the coast. This scenario could produce an increase in coverage and
duration of storms, along with an uptick in storm intensity.


TONIGHT-FRI...Weakening frontal boundary over the Southeast U.S.
will stall over the northern peninsula.  Southwest winds will weaken
as the pressure gradient diminishes. Seas will be 2-3 feet and near2
ft near shore. The main concern for boaters Friday will be scattered
offshore moving storms, producing frequent lightning strikes and
gusty winds into early evening.

Afternoon storms on Fri should form a little farther inland, but
steering level winds will bring them back to the coast by early
evening and could persist late into the evening.
