949 PM EDT Sat Aug 29 2015

Update...showers and storms have been gradually fading out
inland but persisting along the coast due to low level convergence
interacting with instability. This activity will be slowly winding
down in the next few hours. Storms have been slow moving so locally
heavy rains in excess of 2 inches will be possible. The trend for
the rest of the night will be for convection to continue to fade
inland but moist and unstable onshore flow will continue to bring
a chance of showers and storms to the coast.

&&

Aviation...a cluster of storms hugging the coast will result in
occasional ts with MVFR until around 04z. Otherwise prevailing VFR with
vcsh.

&&

Marine...stalled out frontal boundary with high pressure
north of it will produce an onshore flow tonight but no
headlines expected. Winds will be generally east 10 to 15 knots
with seas 3 to 4 feet. Scattered showers and isolated storms.



Rip currents: moderate risk through Sunday with onshore flow.
