.DISCUSSION...

Tonight...No significant changes to current forecast. Temperatures
indeed fell quickly with sunset under clear skies and light winds.
Some cirrus has started to overspread the area so a period of high
overcast is possible. This may have a slight impact on forecast lows
but still a chilly night in the low to mid 40s.

Sunday (previous)...Dry, subsident airmass stays in place to finish
up the weekend.  After a chilly start, temperatures will recover
nicely, but an increase in cirrus overhead is expected to keep highs
slightly cooler than those of today.  Forecasts highs are in the mid
to upper 60s most areas and closer to 70 for the Treasure Coast,
which are all slightly below normal for late January.

.AVIATION...VFR through 00Z Monday.

.MARINE...
Pressure gradient has temporarily weakened allowing W/NW winds to
decrease 5-10 knots but expect NW winds to increase overnight 12-15
knots. The primary contribution to seas is a moderate ENE swell
which may produce hazardous conditions near inlets especially during
the outgoing tide. So will maintain the Caution headline for the
nearshore waters. Conditions not likely very hazardous offshore
since it`s mostly swell so have dropped the Advisory and replaced it
with a Caution for the offshore waters.

Sunday...Pressure gradient will weaken allowing NW/N winds to
diminish to 5-10 kt.  Some lingering seas of 6 ft offshore may
prolong the exercise caution through late morning, with seas
primarily 3-5 feet.
