.Prev Discussion... /issued 929 AM EST Sun Feb 26 2017/

UPDATE...
A nearly zonal flow remains in place aloft this morning while at the
surface, high pressure is building over the southeast behind a cold
front exiting the southern part of the forecast area. Dew points
behind the boundary are in the 30s and 40s, making it feel very nice
outside. Temperatures will warm into the mid 70s to lower 80s under
sunny skies, which is still above normal, but those lower dew points
will make for a fantastic day. There are no weather concerns for
today and the current forecast is on track.

AVIATION...
VFR conditions will prevail through today.

MARINE...
Northeast winds in the 15 to 20 knot range will continue into the
afternoon hours, but then should decrease below exercise caution
levels. High pressure building in to the north will turn winds more
easterly tonight, which will favor a wind surge back into exercise
caution range. High pressure will then remain over the region through
the next several days, with no other headlines expected after
tonight.
