.DISCUSSION...
Latest water vapor imagery shows well defined upper low in the NE
Gulf of Mexico continuing to move east across North Florida this
afternoon. Continued isentropic lift across the area is bringing
areas of rain and rainshowers, mainly north of I-40 across the
area. Expect this activity to begin to taper early this afternoon,
although we will likely see spotty pcpn area wide persist into
this evening before ending.

Had to adjust temperatures downward area wide as pcpn and cloud
cover have caused temperatures to level off after sunrise this
morning. Similarly lowered afternoon high temperatures as any
subsequent heating will struggle to get temperature increases of
10 degrees in continued cloud cover and areas of pcpn. Otherwise
no changes to fcst for this afternoon.
