Discussion...

..warming trend begins today but temps still below normal...

No significant changes to current forecast. Considerable high
cloudiness will filter the sunshine and some marine stratocu should
push onshore the Treasure Coast. High temps will reach the 60s,
except upper 50s along the Volusia coast. These temps are 8-10
degrees below normal.

Aviation...VFR. Could see some brief cigs bkn030-035 from kvrb-ksua
today, however expect these to scatter out to a large extent given
how cold the ocean temps remain.

&&

Marine...
northerly gradient of 10-15 knots has been holding on this morning
over portions of the offshore Volusia and near shore Brevard waters.
But as the high pressure ridge continues to push east across North
Florida and into the Atlc, winds will decrease less than 10 knots and
veer NE-east this afternoon.
