.UPDATE...Convection began earlier today near the St Johns River 
and rapidly spread inland along the east coast seabreeze this 
afternoon. Most convection across land areas has ended so have
removed pops. There are scattered showers/isolated storms across 
the coastal waters off east central Fl coast...associated with a 
surface trough...moving northwest with the mean steering flow.
Most of the activity expected to remain offshore overnite as 
steering winds become more southerly but a few isolated showers 
may come ashore the coast so have kept low pops there for tonight.
A few patches of late night and early morning low clouds and fog 
possible especially across inland areas that received heavy rain 
today. Patchy low clouds also possible tonight along the coast
near any showers. 


.AVIATION...Prevailing VFR tonight. Brief patches of low clouds 
and fog possible later tonight into Tue am. A few showers also 
possible near SGJ and SSI.  


.MARINE...A trough of low pressure will move across the waters 
tonight bringing a surge of south southeast winds along with 
scattered showers and isolated storms. Most of the activity will 
move north. Winds/seas expected to remain just below headlines. 
Winds will tend to veer to the south southwest and decrease some 
towards dawn as the trough begins to move to the north of the 

Rip Currents: A low risk is anticipated for Tuesday.
