.UPDATE...East coast seabreeze pushed well inland to the
Suwannee Valley this eve and produced no convection due to
strong subsidence. The southeast flow behind it will gradually
weaken tonight but will push the smoke plume from the West Mims
Wildfire to the northwest. Visibilities will be reduced to less
than 1 mile at times near and just northwest of the wildfire.

Moist SSE flow may bring in patchy low clouds overnite but
high-res models not very robust on fog probably due to elevated
boundary layer winds.

&&

.AVIATION...Patchy low clouds and fog possible later tonight
with best chances at GNV and VQQ between 08Z-13Z. Confidence is
low on extent of it although have carried previous fcst of MVFR
vsby with scattered low decks at 500 ft. There may also be
patches of low clouds near the coast and went with scattered
low decks around 800 to 1000 ft at SSI and SGJ.

&&

.MARINE...Current data buoy obs indicate winds are SSE near
15 knots. These winds will continue overnite with a slight
reduction towards dawn and into early Saturday morning
before an early afternoon surge with the seabreeze.

Rip Currents: Moderate Risk through Saturday due to an
onshore flow and a long period swell.
