high pressure over the southeast U.S. Is making for a beautiful

a little cool this morning with low 40's along the Nature Coast and
inland areas to low to mid 50's elsewhere. The good news is that the
day will warm up nicely under sunny skies with temperatures topping
out in the upper 60's to low 70's. Forecast looks fine with no
changes needed.
