.DISCUSSION...
Low level westerly flow around 10-15 knots off the surface will
persist across the region ahead of a weak cold front that will
cross north Florida late tonight. At the surface winds will become
light around 5 mph or less, and a band of cirrus across central
Florida should eventually shift east with skies becoming mostly
clear. Despite these lighter surface winds and clearing skies,
model guidance not hinting at any fog development for the area
overnight. However, this environment could still support extremely
localized reductions in visibilities from any settling smoke near
smouldering or active brush fires late tonight toward daybreak
Friday. Temperatures will be more seasonable into tonight, with
lows falling in the low-mid 60s for most locations.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR conditions generally expected. Isolated to
scattered showers and a few storms will be possible into Friday,
mainly through the afternoon along a weak front moving southward
across the area. For now have limited mention to VCSH in the TAFs
due to rain chances being on the lower side, but tempo IFR/MVFR
conditions will be possible with any of this activity.

&&

.MARINE...S/SW winds around 10-15 knots this evening will become
W/SW overnight ahead of an approaching frontal boundary. Seas
will continue 2-3 feet near shore and 3-4 feet offshore.
