PRESSURE BUILDS TOWARD THE MID ATLANTIC COAST. THIS WILL ALLOW
FOR A LIGHT TO MODERATE LOW LEVEL ONSHORE FLOW ACROSS CENTRAL
FLORIDA. NORTHEAST WINDS AROUND 10 TO 15 MPH WILL DECREASE
THROUGH THE EVENING BECOMING LIGHT AFTER MIDNIGHT. VISIBILITY
ISSUES DUE TO SMOKE COULD BE A CONCERN NEAR THE INTERSTATE
LATE TONIGHT AS WIND BECOMES STAGNANT AT THE SURFACE. OTHERWISE
FOG GENERALLY NOT EXPECTED BUT COULD BE PATCHY AROUND THE BURN
SITE TOWARD DAYBREAK.
