134 am edt Sun jul 22 2018

Aviation
GenerallyVFR conditions will hold through around 09z,
although a few patches of MVFR ceilings could briefly
reduce flight categories. After 09z, the coverage of showers
and thunderstorms moving onshore from the gulf will
increase, and could cause intermittent disruptions at area
terminals. Thunderstorm coverage will continue to increase
through the afternoon hours, with storms expected to linger
into the evening.

update...

a weakening MCS pushed through the northern portion of the
area this afternoon producing some gusty winds across the
nature coast. At the present time, just a few light showers
remain across highlands and charlotte counties but most
spots are currently dry under mostly cloudy skies. For the
overnight, forecast is a bit tricky as its difficult to
determine if the aforementioned MCS remnants have
stabilized the northeast gulf enough to impact any
nocturnal morning showers activity from tampa northward that
we would typically expect with the mid upper level pattern
in place across the region. Recent runs of the hrrr keep
much of the area dry overnight but with deep moisture in
place and favorable dynamics feel its prudent to at least
keep some mention of pops in the forecast areawide
overnight. Current forecast has a handle on things well so
no changes made at this time for the evening update. That
being said, forecast remains tricky and showers and storms
could develop at any time so additional updates could be
needed over the next few hours. Overnight conditions will
be quite warm and muggy with coastal locations not getting
out of the 80s with some mid and upper 70s expected inland.

Marine...

elevated winds and choppy seas will be the rule through the
rest of the weekend and into early next week. Winds are
expected to increase tonight to near cautionary levels
across much of the forecast waters out of the west... And
remain at or above 15 knots into Monday. Conditions will
also favor scattered to numerous showers and storms.
