.UPDATE...
Mid/upper-level ridging will remain in place through today with the
surface high pressure ridge axis extending westward over the central
Florida peninsula. This setup will keep generally dry and warm
weather in place through today. A light southeast to south wind flow
will easily give way to a sea breeze this afternoon, which should
keep temps just a bit lower at the coast (though still well above
normal). Updated max temperatures for today based on trends over the
past several days, but no other changes were made.


&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions are expected through the rest of the day. The main
concern will be the likelihood of significant visibility restrictions
overnight into Thursday morning, with IFR or worse conditions
possible.

&&

.MARINE...
High pressure over the western Atlantic will extend westward across
the Florida peninsula through the rest of today, with a generally
light southeast to south wind flow. The sea breeze will easily form
this afternoon, turning winds onshore along the coast. No headlines
expected as both winds and seas will remain below headlines
