Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Jacksonville FL
930 PM EDT Tue Apr 25 2017

.UPDATE...
Only minor updates for tonights forecast. Smoke plume from
wildfires in the Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge will continue to push
off to the east and then eventually northeast for a while tonight
based trajectory forecasts. Winds are expected to be lighter
tonight than last night and may allow some of the smoke to settle
closer to the ground downstream of the fire. Otherwise...min
temps not as cool as last night and still very close to
climatology norms. Mostly clear for northern zones but periods of
partly cloudy skies for parts of our FL zones due to high clouds
and some stratus clouds that may move in from the southwest
overnight and Wed morning. Some patchy light fog is possible over
the I-75 corridor but think it`s not significant enough to
include in the fcst attm.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR conditions prevail through the period. Light
westerly to southwesterly winds tonight and 5-10 kt WEd. Atlantic
sea breeze pushing inland past SGJ and SSI shortly after noon,
with onshore surface winds strengthening during the afternoon
hours. The Atlantic sea breeze is expected to cross the Duval
County terminals during the mid to late afternoon hours.

&&

.MARINE...Winds will briefly decrease below SCEC tonight and
Wednesday before increasing from the south Wednesday night as the
pressure gradient tightens ahead of a frontal boundary.

Rip Currents: Low risk due to fairly low surf conditions.
