Near term /tonight-Tuesday/
Rest of this afternoon/evening... Weak low level ridge axis at the
surface will support both atlc/gomex sea breeze fronts pushing
inland and diurnal heating & pwats just below an inch ahead of
approaching shortwave aloft may be just enough to trigger a few
isolated showers/storms over inland SE ga and the suwannee valley of
inland north fl but overall any coverage still looks to be 20% or
less and brief in timing/intensity. Activity will fade quickly after
sunset during the evening hours.

Tonight... Expect partly cloudy skies as shortwave aloft weakens
and pushes through some mid/high clouds at times. Min temps to
fall into the upper 50s inland and lower 60s coast. Enough low
level cooling and moisture to support patchy fog around sunrise
with some locally dense but these patches should be very shallow
in nature and the SREF organized dense fog chances are 20% or less
for sunrise Tue morning.

Tuesday... Sfc ridge axis presses further southward and steering
flow becomes more w/swly and this will cause a further warming in
the atmosphere with widespread MAX temps into the middle 80s over
inland areas and the atlc sea breeze front will get pinned closer
to the coast and will allow for MAX temps to reach into the upper
70s at the beaches. Rain chances will remain low with only a
slight chance of showers/possibly a storm across inland SE ga
during peak heating of the afternoon hours but weak forcing aloft
should keep activity to a minimum.

Short term (Tuesday night-Wednesday night)... There will be deep
layer ridging over the area while a cold front washes out near the
altamaha. Conditions look mostly warm and dry except for a few
isolated storms possible near the altamaha in close proximity of the
front. Areas of late night and early morning also a possibility
given deep layer ridging over the area and elevated low level
moisture.

Long term (Thursday-Monday)
Rain chances increase area wide towards the end of the week as a
deep low across the southwest u.S. Moves northeast across the ohio
valley short wave energy from this system will drive a cold front
towards the area on Friday... With the front washing out south of the
area over the weekend. Appears most of the dynamics will lift north
of the area in addition to the deeper moisture splitting both north
and south... But there will be a chance of showers and isolated
storms with the approach of the front on Friday. Best rain chances
still appear to be in the western portion from the suwannee valley
to inland southeast ga. Conditions appear to be dry and warm next
weekend with high pressure building into the area behind the front.

The next disturbance brings a chance of showers to the area early
next week. There are still major discrepancies between the GFS and
ecmwf on the timing and southern extent of the short wave energy.

For now... Have low end rain chances.

Aviation
Vfr forecast on track this afternoon with SE winds around 10
knots.VFR continues tonight with sct high clouds at times. Models
still supporting some chances of MVFR fog at inland TAF sites and
have placed 3sm at gnv/vqq and 5sm jax/crg for some possible
sunrise fog.

Marine
Winds become south tonight at 10-15 knots with seas still 3-4 ft
nearshore and 4-6 ft offshore due to long period swells and will
continue scec headline. S/sw flow will continue Tue & Tue night
before a weak wind shift occurs with weak frontal boundary on wed
and shift back to the e/se Wed night/thu but still below any
headline levels. A more significant southerly increase in winds is
expected ahead of the next front on Thu night/Friday with speeds
pushing into the 15-20 knot range and seas back into the 4-7 ft
range and expect at least scec headlines over the offshore waters
and possibly SCA flags.

Rip currents: moderate risk to continue into Tuesday due to the
longer period swells. Surf/breakers still in the 3-4 ft range.
