.UPDATE...
An inverted trough was located over the Atlantic waters to the
east of Georgia this morning, with scattered showers and isolated
storms moving into the coastal locations. Waterspouts are possible
this morning due to the light winds and convergent bands over the
Atlantic waters. The inverted trough will move northward today,
and a weak area of low pressure is forecast to develop tonight
east of South Carolina.

The 12Z sounding this morning showed that low/mid level moisture
continued to increase, with precipitable water values over 1.9
inches. Scattered showers and isolated storms will continue for
the coastal locations through the morning and into the early
afternoon, and then shift to the interior through the early
evening before dissipating. Winds will become offshore tonight due
to the developing low pressure, with dry conditions prevailing
overnight. Highs today are forecast to be in the low to mid 80s
for coastal locations and mid to upper 80s inland.

.AVIATION...
MVFR conditions are possible this morning into the early afternoon as
showers and isolated storms move inland from the Atlantic. Showers
and storms will then move across the interior towards KGNV in the
afternoon. Light winds this morning will become northeast to east
around 10 knots this afternoon.
