Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Jacksonville FL
934 AM EDT Thu Jun 29 2017

.UPDATE...
With the ridge to our north and east will continue an easterly
flow in the low levels which should push most of the shower and
thunderstorm activity into the Suwannee Valley and other interior
areas this afternoon and evening. Highs will be in the mid 90s
with heat index values of 95 to 100.

&&

.AVIATION...
Main issue will be showers and thunderstorms this afternoon at
Gainesville Regional Airport. Will keep in the vicinity for the
Jacksonville metro fields but expect the majority of the
convection to be west of the Jacksonville area.

&&

.MARINE...ESE winds 10-15 kts today with combined seas 1-3 ft.
Waves of showers will move inland through the morning, with a
chance of afternoon tstorms closer toward the coast. Winds shift
more toward the SSE Friday as high pressure builds across south
Florida. This weekend SSW flow develops between the ridge to the
south and an approaching surface front NW of the region.
Thunderstorm activity will increase this weekend into early next
week ahead of the front.

Rip Currents: Moderate risk of rip currents today due to continued
onshore flow and longer period swells of near 11-12 seconds. Low
risk of rip currents expected Friday.
