.DISCUSSION...
Light environmental flow in proximity to high pressure has already
backed to N component early this evening. Despite the backing winds
dewpoints in the 50s and presence of thin higher cloudiness will not
allow for temps to fall much more the remainder of the night. The
present forecast is in good shape. Some light fog will be possible
by daybreak in the usual locations and consensus of short range guid
is not indicating much potential for more expansive fog development.

prev disc...

TONIGHT-SUN...Strong surface high pressure over the Deep South
will transition toward the Mid-Atlantic Seaboard, sliding offshore
through Sun. Locally, low level winds will veer as previously
forecast NE-E overnight, then E-SE on Sun. The persistent maritime
flow will further moderate post-frontal effects for east central
Florida. Stubborn cloudiness within multi-decks (low/mid/hi) today
has made itself a variable/minor nuisance from Leesburg, to
Sanford, to Daytona. The shield will continue to erode, but linger
in spots particularly from Sanford to Daytona. Expect some
additional cirrus to stream in from the west overnight. As such,
will leave out mention of patchy ground fog (in public forecast) at
this time even though winds should die off for several hours.
Even so, the overall pattern remains dry and benign. Across east
central Florida, Min Temps L50s (north/interior) to M60s
(south/coastal). Max Temps Sun M/U70s.

seas 2-3 feet. Boating conditions will be favorable.
