.UPDATE...
A pleasant early December day is in store for east central Florida
this Saturday. High pressure centered over the Ohio Valley will
shift toward the eastern seaboard today, allowing winds to veer to
the northeast locally. Skies will average mostly clear this
morning, becoming partly cloudy this afternoon as patches of
mid/upper level clouds pass overhead and some low clouds move in
off the Atlantic south of Cape Canaveral. No rain is expected.
Temperatures will near their climatological averages for early
December, low 70s far north to the upper 70s south.

This morning`s forecast remains on track and no updates necessary.

.AVIATION...
VFR. Aside from patches of mid/high level clouds (at or above
FL150) passing overhead at times, occasional cigs around
FL035-040 possible south of KMLB beginning late this afternoon and
evening as moisture moves in off the Atlantic. Breezy northeast
winds near 15 knots developing this morning subsiding after
sunset.

&&

.MARINE...
Today...High pressure will build east and off the US east coast
veering our winds from north to northeast. The pressure gradient
will support wind speeds around 15 knots. The north wind component
will continue to produce choppy (short period) seas especially in
the gulf stream where occasional seas of 6 feet will occur so
small craft should exercise caution over the open atlantic.

Tonight...Winds will become easterly with a period of 15-20 knots
across much of the waters so caution headline will likely be
needed.
