.UPDATE...
High pressure dominates the weather over the eastern half of the
U.S. and is giving us very pleasant weather once again today.
Visible satellite imagery and surface observations are showing
mostly clear conditions across west central and southwest Florida.
Some local areas of dense fog have burned off since sunrise giving
way to sunny skies. Temperatures are very similiar to what we saw 24
hours ago and will warm up nicely today with highs 8-10 degrees
above normal for late February.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions will prevail through through the period, with some
patchy fog possible in the 08z to 14z timeframe. This looks to
mainly affect the more fog-prone terminals of KLAL and KPGD.
Light/calm winds become easterly during the day, then shift to
onshore near coast from SRQ north in the afternoon.

&&

.MARINE...
High pressure has set up over the eastern half of the U.S. producing
favorable boating conditions over the coastal waters. Winds will
remain 15 knots or less with seas 2 feet or less through the week.
Conditions will remain rain free until Wednesday when a frontal
boundary moves through the area.
