.UPDATE...

It was a rather warm day for mid-December across East Central
Florida. Most places topped out in the mid to upper 70s with a
couple spots reaching 80 degrees, which is roughly 5 to 8 degrees
above the 30-year averages for this time of year.

For the rest of this evening and tonight, mostly clear skies and
very light/calm winds should promote fog development, some locally
dense, with the greatest potential over the interior along and
south of the I-4 corridor. The, HRRR, RAP, and local WRF are all
in fairly good agreement with this scenario and show fog
developing during the overnight hours and lasting through mid
morning before eventually burning off. Higher dewpoints in place
will keep lows above normal and a degree or two either side of 60
degrees. Inherited forecast in good shape with no changes needed.

Monday(previous)...The high pressure ridge axis will continue to
sag into the central FL peninsula during the day as winds remain
light areawide. Conditions continue to remain dry. Deep layer
ridging remains stout over the region keeping surface/upper- level
weather systems well north. Highs continue above climo, in the
U70s along the coast and L80s inland.

&&

.AVIATION...
MVFR and IFR ceilings/visibilities (some LIFR) likely tonight
after 06Z lasting through mid morning. Fog and low stratus will
gradually give way to VFR conditions by late Monday morning
lasting through the rest of the day.

&&

.MARINE...
Tonight-Mon...Some patchy fog is possible tonight into Monday
morning over the intracoastal. Otherwise, favorable boating
conditions with 1-2 ft seas nearshore and 2-3 ft for the offshore
waters. Wind speeds expected to be south to southeasterly (perhaps
out of the southwest overnight north of Sebastian Inlet) at or
below 10 kt.
