.DISCUSSION...
The low pressure system center is just to the north of the
state this evening, with the cold front still well back to
the west. Afternoon convection that mainly impacted the
extreme eastern counties today is winding down, but a few
pre-frontal showers have developed over the last hour across
the greater Tampa Bay region and the adjacent coastal
waters. Have some low pops in through the overnight hours as
well as some patchy fog and this looks on track. The front
will gradually push south through the area through the day
Tuesday with high pressure ridging in for mid-week. No
updates planned.

&&

.AVIATION...
MVFR/IFR or lower will impact the terminals overnight with
some patchy fog also developing. Ceilings will lift through
the late morning, and then gradually clear out through the
afternoon as the front moves through. A few afternoon
storms will be possible across the southern terminals.

&&

.MARINE...
The front will push through the area tomorrow with winds
turning to the W/NW as high pressure builds in from the
west. Wind speeds should remain AOB 15 knots through the
period. Current forecast is on track and have little change
for the update.
