.UPDATE...

THE WRN ATLC WILL SLOWLY LIFT NORTHWARD TODAY AND WILL COMBINE TO
BRING ISOLD SHOWERS TO THE COASTAL WATERS WITH A FEW SPRINKLES/LIGHT
SHOWERS POSSIBLE ALONG THE COASTAL COUNTIES EAST OF THE I-95

PERCENT. OTHERWISE ACROSS NE FL/SE GA EXPECT PARTLY SUNNY SKIES WITH

CONFIDENCE NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO INCLUDE IN ZFP/GRIDS YET.
