...Much Cooler Air Overspreading East Central Florida...

At 730 PM, a cold front has pushed across much of central Florida,
and was located from about Cape Canaveral to Fort Myers. A second,
stronger cold front was located from Jacksonville to Cedar Key on
the Gulf Coast, and was also dropping south toward Lake and Volusia
Counties. Temperatures were generally in the 60s, with a few lower
70s confined to the immediate Space and Treasure Coast regions.

Overnight, look for lows to continue falling through the 60s and
into the 50s, as the current west to southwest winds become more
northwesterly. By sunrise Monday, lows will range from around 50
degrees over Northern lake and Volusia Counties to the upper 50s
near Lake Okeechobee and Tequesta.

Some breaks in the clouds will continue through late evening,
however overcast skies should spread back over the region from
northwest to southeast as that reinforcing cold front sags south
into the area.

A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the local Atlantic beyond
20 nautical miles. West winds of around 20 knots will become more
northwesterly late tonight as a cold front pushes south of east
central Florida. Small craft should exercise caution near shore.
Expect seas of 4 to 6 feet near shore and up to 7 feet offshore.
