.NOW...

...Mostly sunny and mild...breezy along the coast...

High pressure will build across the Florida Peninsula today in the
wake of a weak cold front south of Lake Okeechobee. Sunny skies will
prevail with temperatures warming into the mid to upper 70s...low
to mid 70s along the coast north of Cape Canaveral. North winds
around 10 mph through late morning...becoming northeast around 15 mph
by early afternoon. Gusts up to 20 mph along the coast.

At the beaches today...a strong north to south flowing current will
exist in the surf zone...posing a hazard for those entering the
Atlantic. Also...there will be a moderate risk of rip currents.

For mariners...north winds near 20 knots this morning will drive seas
of 5 to 7 feet nearshore and up to 8 feet in the Gulf Stream. A
small craft advisory is in effect this morning. Wind and seas will
lessen somewhat this afternoon along the coast north of Sebastian
Inlet.
