.UPDATE...

The region will be between high pressure to the Southeast, and a
trough to the North Today. This will provide a general West to
Southwest flow over NE FL into the afternoon, helping to keep the
East coast sea breeze near the coast. With this flow moisture
will increase from the gulf with convection spreading from
Southwest to Northeast later this morning, with convection also
developing along the East coast sea breeze. During the mid
afternoon convection will spread over central portions of NE FL,
then dissipating later in the afternoon. With a fairly light flow
expected Today, localized heavy rainfall will be expected. A
little drier flow over SE GA will limit convection there to a more
isolated to scattered coverage.

&&

.AVIATION...

Convection is expected to develop this morning, with scattered
to numerous convection through the afternoon. Brief restrictions
in and near storms will be possible.
