National Weather Service Jacksonville Florida
924 PM EDT Wednesday may 27 2015

Update...little deep convection developed over the western zones this
afternoon and evening and latest radar shows no precipitation echoes.
Thus will remove probability of precipitation for rest of tonight. One small exception
would be over the coastal waters where sufficient low level
moisture exists for a small shower but even there probabilities
anticipated to be 15 percent or less. Lows tonight will be a bit
lower than last night due to lower dewpoints...but still expecting
generally partly cloudy skies mainly due to debris clouds afternoon/evening
from convection over southern Georgia. Tweaked min temperatures a 1-2 degree bit
lower. Some patchy shallow fog possible but not enough to warrant
mention in grids and forecast.

&&

Aviation...VFR prevails next 24 hours for all taf sites.

&&

Marine...east to southeast winds near 10-15 knots expected rest of tonight
with seas of around 2 to 4 feet. Isolated small light shower
possible through Thursday morning.

Rip currents: moderate risk through Thursday due to onshore flow
and surf around 2-3 feet.
