.Update...00z soundings confirm what LAPS CAPE has been
showing...decent instability across our southern counties...

Gilchrist-Alachua-Marion counties this afternoon...with drier
and more stable conditions north and east of these counties.
Activity has decreased...currently just a single t-storm over
Gilchrist Co. Otherwise clear to partly cloudy skies tonight with
upper trough moving over forecast area. Low temp forecast looks
fine...with mid 60s well inland...upr 60s close to coast.

&&

.Aviation...Prevailing VFR conditions next 24 hrs.

&&

.Marine...No significant changes planned in next cwf issuance.
Gusty W/NW flow at 15-20 knots with seas of 3-6 ft will weaken
tonight as the offshore flow continues...then becomes weak enough
on Monday to allow for local sea breezes to develop and overall
flow to become southerly once again. The remainder of the week
will feature light winds/seas with local sea breezes along the
coast. Isolated thunderstorms possible at times.

Rip Currents: Moderate risk will linger through Memorial Day as
swells/seas slowly subside.
