Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Jacksonville FL
930 PM EDT Mon Mar 27 2017

.UPDATE...
No real changes to the forecast needed tonight. Isolated showers
are still possible for a few more hours over far western portions
of the area. A shortwave trough will move through northern Georgia
tonight and the scattered showers and thunderstorms trailing
south and stretching into the far western portions of the Florida
Panhandle are expected to weaken as the system progresses
eastward. A mild evening with lows in the upper 50s/low 60s is
expected.  Patchy fog still looks possible overnight, and some
localized areas of dense fog are possible near water sources or
locally low- lying areas. Rest of the forecast remains unchanged.

&&

.AVIATION...
Isolated showers are possible for a few more hours tonight though
most locations will remain dry.  VFR conditions are expected for
the most part of the TAF cycle, though there will be some patchy
MVFR/IFR fog early Tuesday morning across inland areas. Light and
variable to occasionally calm winds will increase out of the
southwest tomorrow morning. Seabreeze winds will shift winds at
coastal terminals southeasterly by early afternoon.

&&

.MARINE...
Southeasterly winds become south later tonight at 10-15 knots.
Seas remain 3-4 ft nearshore and 4-6 ft offshore due to long
period swells and will continue SCEC headline. S/SW flow will
continue tomorrow and tomorrow night before a weak frontal
boundary on Wed shifts winds back to the E/SE Wed Night/Thu. A
more significant southerly increase in winds is expected ahead of
the next front on Thu Night/Friday with speeds pushing into the
15-20 knot range. Seas will rise into the 4-7 ft range and expect
at least SCEC headlines over the offshore waters and possibly SCA
flags this timeframe.

Rip Currents: Moderate risk to continue tomorrow due to the
longer period swells. Surf/Breakers still in the 3-4 ft range.
