.UPDATE...
12Z sounding this morning continued to show dry conditions, with
precipitable water values around 1 inch. Temperatures were rising
into the upper 50s and 60s this morning, and will rise into the
mid 80s to near 90 this afternoon. A shortwave trough was pushing
east northeast through the ArkLaTex this morning and will move
into the Tennessee Valley overnight tonight. Mid and high level
clouds will continue to stream in from the west across the region
through the period. Sea breeze boundaries will move inland from
both coasts this afternoon, and merge across the interior. With
the dry conditions aloft, do not expect any convection to develop.
A prefrontal trough will move across the northern Gulf coast and
Southeast this evening, with numerous showers and embedded storms
pushing across the Suwanee Valley and southeast Georgia late
tonight into Friday morning. A few strong to severe storms are
possible, mainly along the Suwanee Valley. Convection is forecast
to weaken as it moves across the area, with the best dynamically
forcing pushing north of southeast Georgia, and also remaining
along the Gulf coast. Showers and embedded storms will move across
the rest of northeast Florida Friday morning into the early
afternoon. A secondary frontal boundary will then move through the
region late Friday.

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions forecast through the period. Light south to
southwest winds this morning will become southeasterly for the
east coast TAF sites as an east coast sea breeze moves inland.
Rain chances will increase towards the end of the TAF period.
