The low pressure system center is just to the north of the state this evening, with the cold front still well back to the west. Afternoon convection that mainly impacted the extreme eastern counties today is winding down, but a few pre-frontal showers have developed over the last hour across the greater Tampa Bay region and the adjacent coastal waters. Have some low pops in through the overnight hours as well as some patchy fog and this looks on track. The front will gradually push south through the area through the day Tuesday with high pressure ridging in for mid-week. No updates planned. && .AVIATION...
