.UPDATE...

Starting to see some CU fields develop from south to north
this morning as a mid level cloud deck starts to dissipate
around Sarasota County. The 12Z sounding for TBW showing a
little more moisture in the air to work with compared to
yesterday with PW around 1.79. The extra moisture combined
with the seabreeze will help to produce some isolated to
scattered storms through the afternoon. Highest coverage
will once again be across the inland areas. No changes have
been done to the forecast.

&&

.AVIATION...
Expect prevailing VFR cigs today with afternoon seabreeze
convection bringing temporary MVFR or localized IFR
conditions after 18z if convection manages to move over
airport. Better chances for the storms will be in the
interior part of the state but have kept VCTS for all
airports through the afternoon.

&&

.MARINE...
Light rainshowers continue about 30 miles off the coast of
Pinellas County. These showers are slowly dissipating and
should be done in the next couple of hours. A typical
summer afternoon for boaters with most showers occurring
over land with heating of the day. However boaters should
still watch out for a few storms in the gulf that could
produce gusty winds and locally higher waves.
