.UPDATE...
FOG HAS BEGUN TO LIFT AND DISSIPATE WITH PARTLY TO MOSTLY SUNNY
SKIES EXPECTED TO PREVAIL THIS AFTERNOON. SOUTHEAST LOW LEVEL FLOW
AROUND HIGH PRESSURE OFF THE SOUTHEAST U.S. COAST SHOULD NOT BE
STRONG ENOUGH TO PREVENT THE WEST COAST SEA BREEZE FROM DEVELOPING
NEAR THE COAST THIS AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY FROM THE TAMPA BAY AREA
NORTHWARD. FURTHER SOUTH THE SEA BREEZE WILL BE DELAYED SOME...BUT
SHOULD STILL SEE WINDS SHIFT TO A MORE SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST
DIRECTION ALONG THE COAST BY LATE AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES WILL
WARM INTO THE LOWER TO MID 80S...EXCEPT CLOSE TO THE GULF COAST
WHERE THE SEA BREEZE SHOULD KEEP TEMPERATURES IN THE 70S. OVERALL
NO CHANGES PLANNED FOR THIS MORNING AND ZONE FORECAST HAS ALREADY
BEEN UPDATED TO REMOVE DENSE FOG ADVISORY HEADLINE.

&&

.MARINE...
A STABLE AND MOIST AIR MASS IN PLACE OVER THE COASTAL WATERS HAS
HELPED SUPPORT SOME PATCHES OF DENSE SEA FOG THIS MORNING.
CURRENTLY ON SATELLITE NEAR SHORE WATERS ADJACENT TO CEDAR KEY...

SEA FOG SLOWLY SHIFTING FURTHER OFF SHORE. EXPECT THESE AREAS TO

MORNING. STILL ANTICIPATING INCREASED POTENTIAL FOR MORE WIDESPREAD
SEA FOG IN THE GULF WATERS DEVELOPING AS EARLY AS TOMORROW AS
