Update...
another quiet and pleasant day is expected across the region
today. The morning has started out nice with temperatures
generally in the 60s under clear skies. Abundant dry air remains
over the region as evidenced by morning soundings and water vapor
imagery. High pressure at both the surface and aloft will be
building over the region through today as an upper trough digging
through the southeast continues to shift away from the area. No
rain is expected today and temperatures will top out in the upper
70s to lower 80s area-wide.

knots or less and seas generally 3 feet or less.
