East to Northeast...as a ridge to the north begins to slide east and
TD Number Two continues to move WNW. 00Z Jax Sounding indicates moisture
was increasing...especially below 700 MB. This may result in a few

which may dot the coast early Sat morning before moving inland
Saturday afternoon.

develop broken MVFR CIGS around 3000 feet by mid morning along the coastal
TAF sites and push inland in the afternoon with cigs climbing into VFR.
