Diurnal CU/SC quickly dissipating post sunset, leaving clear skies across the region. a moderate west to southwest breeze will continue overnight between the surface ridge axis across SOFL and a trough of low pressure moving across the SE CONUS. Low level wind profile seems favorable for stratus to develop and move quickly eastward across the peninsula late tonight, per the current forecast. This will also keep temps quite warm for early April, in the U60s to L70s.
Westerly flow will freshen overnight as the influence of the diurnal ECSB circ quickly yields back to a fairly tight pressure gradient. Wind speeds will increase to 15-20kt, however seas appear to be very unlikely get any higher than 3-4ft over the outermost waters, given current buoy obs show 2.0ft @41009 and 3.6ft @41010. Will keep inherited SCEC going for beyond 20nm due to the expected increase in wind speeds.
.CLIMATE...Record high temperatures will be approached on Thursday, with a few record warm mins also possible tomorrow from Orlando northward as lows will only fall into the U60s-L70s.
