.DISCUSSION...

Temperatures have fallen quickly after sunset under clear skies and
very light to calm winds. Min temps will generally be in the low to
mid 50s, except upper 40s over Okeechobee county and western (rural)
Indian River and St Lucie counties as well NW Volusia/Northern Lake.
With good radiational cooling occurring, full recovery of RH is
expected in many areas, so patchy ground fog should form. But
widespread fog is not expected.

On Saturday, high pressure ridge nosing down the eastern seaboard
will produce a light north to northeast wind flow. Skies will be
mostly sunny in the morning but there will be an increase in mid
level cloudiness (altocumulus) by afternoon esp from Orlando
northward. No rain is expected as low levels will remain pretty dry.
Max temps will range from the lower 70s along the immediate Volusia
coast to the upper 70s over the south interior (Okeechobee and
adjacent western Treasure coast counties).

&&

.AVIATION...
Mainly VFR next 24 hours. Favorable radiational cooling conditions
overnight should lead to some patchy shallow ground fog. However,
significant fog is not expected per LAMP and HRRR guidance. Will
therefore leave any mention out of the TAFs at this time.

&&

.MARINE...
No significant changes to current coastal waters forecast.
Tonight-Saturday...Favorable boating conditions expected, with
veering wind flow from southerly to westerly overnight 5-10 knots,
becoming northerly tomorrow. Seas will range from 1-2 feet tonight,
increasing up to 3 feet well offshore late Saturday.
