...Near Normal Low Temps Tonight As Cloud Cover Clears...

.UPDATE...

Cloud cover is gradually diminishing this evening across NE
Florida as dry mid-level air settles in. Across SE Georgia,
scattered to broken cloud cover may persist longer into the
overnight with more moisture in the lower and mid-levels. As a
result, should see low temperatures fairly uniform in the mid 50s
across the area with the warmest temps in the low 60s for coastal
and southern zones. Surface low pressure continues to move up into
the Mid- Atlantic region overnight as the closed low aloft slowly
propagates eastward. With the slow movement, expecting similar
weather conditions tonight into tomorrow with perhaps lesser cloud
cover and lighter westerly winds.



&&

.AVIATION...

Scattered to broken VFR ceilings around five to six thousand feet
are gradually decreasing in coverage this evening. Light westerly
winds will persist tonight before increasing to around 10 knots
tomorrow. Expecting similar conditions tomorrow with westerly flow
but will have less coverage in cloud cover overall. VFR conditions
expected to prevail through the TAF period.


&&

.MARINE...

SCEC for offshore waters through Wednesday as seas remain 5-6
feet. Winds will gradually decrease during the day tomorrow and
seas will respond toward the end of the day.

Rip Currents: Low risk of rip currents on Wednesday with
continuing offshore flow.
