.DISCUSSION...

A ridge of high pressure will move over the area today, causing
the southwest winds through Captain`s Bay to diminish through the
morning. Tonight, an area of low pressure approaching will cause
the winds to shift to the southeast, with a chance of rain late in
the night into Saturday morning. The area will be on the northern
periphery of the precipitation shield through Saturday. With
northeast winds causing moisture loading through Captain`s Bay on
Saturday, expect plenty of low cloud cover and potential for fog.
