Updated for 18Z Aviation Discussion and for Marine.

.AVIATION...

VFR. Mainly wind forecast. High pressure will continue to settle
in across the region with NE winds expected to relax through the
evening. Gusts of 20-25 KTs still remain possible over the next
few hours. Overnight, winds will back more out of the north,
especially in the inland areas from ALI-VCT. LRD winds should
actually take on a more easterly flow. Winds will gradually shift
east to southeast Monday as high pressure slides east. Should see
an increase in cirrus developing through today.

&&

.MARINE...

Extended the Small Craft Advisory through 3 PM for the bays and
nearshore waters extending out to 20 NM. Observations in the bays
and just on the gulf side of the barrier islands still support the
stronger winds. As high pressure builds in, winds should diminish
to below criteria levels through the afternoon from north to
south. As for the offshore waters, current sea heights are around
10 feet at Buoy 20. Will need to continue to monitor for possible
SCA extension as well as sea heights may take longer to subside.
