Update
Current-tonight... Another quiet afternoon with limited convective
coverage with swath of drier air spilling across the fl peninsula.

Showers and storms that were able to spark today moved inland along
the east coast sea breeze, exiting the CWA by sunset. Once again,
isolated to scattered marine showers will move eastward in deep
onshore flow this evening and tonight, with brief sprinkles able to
push onshore to coastal areas south of CAPE canaveral. No
significant changes to tonight's forecast, other than a slight
decrease in overnight pops for the treasure coast, taking from 30%
down to 20%. Nighttime lows in the low to mid 70s, upper 70s for
some coastal locations.

A quick glance to GOES derived pwats reflects the limiting factor in
today's convection, but also the pattern shift in store for the next
24 hours. Dry air over the northern forecast area leads to pw of a
mere 1.60", shifting southward to the southern CWA leads to
increased moisture and pw over 2.00". This broad area of higher
moisture is associated with a weak tropical low that will move along
the fl coastline tomorrow and into the weekend. This will lead to
higher rain chances and the potential for heavy rainfall, mainly for
the southern forecast area tomorrow.

Aviation
Vfr overnight. Dry air over much of the region limited convection
again today, with most terminals only seeing vcts this afternoon.

Nocturnal marine showers will persist tonight, with deep onshore
flow enabling iso shra to reach the southern coast. Will handle this
activity with vcsh for kvrb south through midnight, with confidence
lowering toward daybreak. Tomorrow, higher moisture over s. Fl will
approach southern areas, leading for the potential of late morning
shower activity, then isolated convection again along the dominant
east coast sea breeze for inland terminals after 18z.

Marine
Tonight-Friday... (modified previous) increasing shower and storm
coverage expected as an inverted trough of low pressure approaches
the waters. East to east-southeast winds around 10-15 kt will
continue tonight and Friday south of sebastian inlet and around 10
kt to the north. Seas remain around 2 ft nearshore and 2-3 ft
offshore. Isolated shower activity near and south of sebastian inlet
tonight, with storms possible over the gulf stream waters.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
