Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Jacksonville FL
904 PM EST Sun Nov 19 2017

.UPDATE...

The forecast is right on track. Much colder and drier air has
advected into the region as high pressure builds in from the
northwest. It will be a chilly night for inland locations with
min temperatures around 10 degrees below normal. Not really
expecting frost to be much of an issue considering that winds
will not totally decouple, and dewpoint depressions look to be a
good 3 to 5 degrees at the coldest point near the time of sunrise
tomorrow morning. Nevertheless, there could still be some very
patchy frost at our normally colder and lower lying locations
that are wind protected across far inland southeast Georgia and
in the Suwannee Valley region of northeast Florida.

&&

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions will continue into Monday morning. Return of
onshore flow on Monday will bring some scattered marine clouds
around 3000 feet, especially to the coastal TAF sites. VFR
conditions are expected to prevail.

&&

.MARINE...

Small craft advisory still looks good across the offshore zones.
An expiration time during the early morning hours tonight still
looks to be a good call. Northwest winds this evening will
steadily veer to the northeast by sunrise tomorrow morning. Small
craft will need to exercise caution in all of our adjacent coastal
waters on Monday for northeast winds of 15 to 20 knots.

Rip Currents: Moderate risk expected on Monday as onshore flow
develops.
