Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Jacksonville FL
1018 AM EDT Sat Oct 21 2017

.UPDATE...
No big changes to the forecast this morning as high pressure
remains the main weather feature. Isolated showers and gusty winds
near 25 to 30 mph are possible near the coast, and move inland
just beyond I-95 mostly in northeast Florida this afternoon. Only
very light rainfall totals and highs in the low to mid 80s are
expected.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions are expected today, though ceilings will fill in
the BKN035-050 range by afternoon. Isolated showers are possible
through the afternoon, especially along the northeast Florida
coast. Winds will be easterly at 10 to 15 knots with gusts near 20
knots close to the coast. High confidence that ceilings will
remain overnight, though confidence is low to medium that ceilings
could lower into the MVFR range.

&&

.MARINE...
Small Craft Exercise Caution (SCEC) conds will continue into
early next week as E/NE winds at 15-20 knots and seas 4-6 ft will
slowly veer to E/SE on Sunday and SE/S on Monday. Winds/Seas will
be close to Small Craft Advisory (SCA) levels with the frontal
passage by Tuesday/Wednesday as they shift W/NW.

Rip Currents: High Risk Today with breakers/surf in the 3-5 ft
range due to the onshore flow and continuing swells. Onshore flow
and swells may subside enough to allow for Moderate Risk on
Sunday.
