Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Jacksonville FL
943 PM EDT SAT MAY 28 2016

.UPDATE...The main story however is T.S. Bonnie located about 135
miles SSE of Charleston SC...expected to move northwest later
tonight. Bonnie is a weak tropical storm. Our area remains in the
more subsident and drier side of the cyclone.

A few showers and storms formed over the interior zones of NE FL
this afternoon and evening but instability and forcing has
weakened...so pops have been removed for those areas. There may
still be a stray shower near the southwest-moving E coast sea
breeze near the I-75 corridor but chances appear to be less than
15 percent. Some isolated shower activity possible near the
Altamaha Basin rest of tonight. NE to N winds will weaken through
tonight and back to the NW and W as Bonnie lifts NW and then N.
Breezy conditions along the coast from St Augustine northward
should weaken later tonight. Little to no change in low temps
with upper 60s to lower 70s with mostly cloudy skies most
northern zones due to outflow from Bonnie...then mostly clear
elsewhere.

&&

.AVIATION...Sct brief broken cumulus around SSI early evening...but
otherwise VFR prevails.

&&

.MARINE...Winds and seas remain elevated over the coastal waters
with SCA in effect for most portions of the coastal waters...with
SCEC headline nearshore. Winds and seas were increased a bit for
the CWF update.

RIP CURRENTS: Elevated rip current threat continues through
Sunday.
