.Prev Discussion... /issued 821 PM EST Sun Dec 10 2017/

EVENING UPDATE...
A cold and clear night is expected as high pressure settles
in across the Florida peninsula. With light to calm winds
and clear skies, conditions will be optimal for radiational
cooling, and expect lows to bottom out in the upper 20s to
lower 30s in some areas north of I-4. Mid to upper 30s will
be widespread and frost can be expected most anywhere away
from the coast. As such, any sensitive plants should
probably be brought indoors just to be safe, and certainly
where freeze warnings are currently in effect.

No major changes were needed to the existing forecast.

MARINE... High pressure will continue to settle in over the
waters, allowing winds and seas to subside overnight with
favorable boating conditions expected through early Tuesday.
Another cold front will bring cautionary to advisory
conditions late Tuesday into Wednesday with improving marine
conditions for the end of the week.

FIRE WEATHER...
Very dry air has filled in behind a strong cold front. This
will bring periods of critically low humidities both Monday
and Wednesday this week as another cold front moves
through. Despite this, ERC values will remain high and winds
relatively light. This will prevent any need for red flag
watches or warnings. Gradual moistening is expected for the
latter half of the week, with rising humidities.
