.UPDATE...
12Z TBW RAOB ONCE AGAIN SHOWED AMPLE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE FROM THE
SURFACE TO ABOUT 3KFT BEFORE DRYING SIGNIFICANTLY ALOFT. EARLY

TO KEEP AN EYE ON HOW LONG THIS CLOUD DECK WILL PERSIST AS IT
COULD HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE FORECAST. ONLY MINOR CHANGES MADE AT
THIS TIME TO THE FORECAST TO ACCOUNT FOR CURRENT CLOUD COVER.
OTHERWISE TEMPS EXPECTED TO NEAR SEASONAL NORMS THIS AFTERNOON
UNDER PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES.

HOVERING BETWEEN 2-3KFT ACROSS THE AREA. SOUTHERN TERMINALS HAVE

ALLOWING FOR VFR TO PREVAIL ACROSS WEST-CENTRAL AND SW FLORIDA.
