National Weather Service Jacksonville Florida
847 PM EST Sat Dec 27 2014

Update...the East Coast seabreeze helped bring in elevated
dewpoints to the area this afternoon. This coupled with near
calm winds...low based inversion...and ridging aloft will help
lead to areas of fog developing after midnight and into early
Sunday morning. Cloud cover will help limit widespread dense fog
potential but locally dense fog is possible especially across the
inland areas.

&&

Aviation...with low level moisture increasing and middle/upper ridge
building across the Florida Peninsula...conditions will be favorable for
low clouds and fog to begin to develop after midnight into early sun
am. Best chances for dense fog still appear to be across the
interior of the Florida Peninsula and will continue with forecast of vlifr at
gnv beginning at 07z. Have MVFR beginning at rest of terminals
between 04z-06z becoming IFR after 09z. Only a slow improvement to
MVFR ceilings by around 15z which will continue into much of Sunday
afternoon.

&&

Marine...a weak coastal trough will gradually lift north into
Sunday. NE winds will back to the north and northwest and become
lighter by late tonight. Areas of fog will develop near the coast
late tonight into Sunday am.

Rip currents: low risk.
