Discussion...

Tonight...convection generated by east/west boundary collision over
Lake County was diminishing/lifting north. Lingering boundaries
could generate additional activity through late evening from Orlando
to Deland and Daytona Beach.

Otherwise the low level high pressure ridge axis nudging to Cape
Canaveral or a little farther north will bring some onshore flow.
Water vapor shows a ribbon of drying oriented northeast/southwest
working westward across the coastal waters and south half of the
forecast area. Expect higher moisture to be approaching southern
sections late tonight...so the onshore flow will bring a small
chance of showers to the South Coast.

On minor changes will be made to forecast grids.

&&

Aviation...
a few showers/storms will be in the vicinity of korl-klee-ksfb-kdab
until about 03z. Light onshore flow will bring a slight chance of
showers to the coast after 06z from about kvrb-ksua. Afternoon
heating will generate isolated/scattered showers/storms along the
East Coast sea breeze with activity shifting west of the coastal
terminals by about 18-20z then start to affect interior sites.

&&

Marine...southeast winds to around 10 knots overnight will become east-southeast 5-10
