.UPDATE...
An upper low over the MS/AL coastline is producing just
enough instability to produce some low/mid cloudiness over
the west coast of Florida this morning. Some showers are
showing up well off the coast, but are not expected to
impact any of the west central and southwest Florida areas
today. PW values are already lower than 24 hours ago and is
expected to continue to decrease over the next 24-48 hours.
No changes needed for the morning update.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions expected at all terminals for the next 24
hours. Drier air moving into the area should keep conditions
rain free. Winds will be light and variable this morning,
then slightly increasing with an onshore flow this
afternoon, but still remaining less than 10 knots.

&&

.MARINE...
Light east to northeast flow will become more northerly as high
pressure lifts northwest of the region. As the gradient
will remain light, the seabreeze will allow winds to shift
onshore near the coast each afternoon. Dry conditions are
expected much of the coming week, with gradually increasing
rain chances by the weekend. No marine hazards are expected
during this time.
