.DISCUSSION...

...Unseasonably Cold Tonight with Wind Chill Advisory Over Most
of Area Late Tonight...

Drier/colder airmass continues to build into the area in the
elevated northwest flow behind the cold front that is now well
east of the area. Any lingering showers/clouds have cleared the
area as drier air continues to move in. Temperatures tonight will
fall into the mid to upper 30s, except low 40s along the southern
Treasure Coast. These colder temperatures combined with northwest
winds around 10 mph will produce wind chill values as low as the
upper 20s to low 30s late tonight into early Sunday morning for
most areas. A Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect for all
counties in east central Florida, except St. Lucie and Martin
Counties for these chilly conditions. Forecast looks on track with
no changes needed.

.MARINE...
Tonight and Sunday...Ongoing advisory conditions with brisk post-
frontal gradient winds will continue into Sunday. Seas will become
fully arisen overnight tonight in the 6 to 7 foot range nears shore
and 7 to 9 ft offshore. Reduction in winds Sunday should allow
for the advisory to be trimmed to only the outer waters by around
midday and no more than caution headlines by Sunday evening.
