.DISCUSSION...
LIGHT WINDS THIS MORNING MAY ALLOW FOR SOME PATCHY FOG BUT THIS
SHOULD BE SHORT LIVED. WINDS SHOULD BE LIGHT FOR MUCH OF THIS WEEK
BUT INCREASE FROM THE SOUTH FOR THE END OF THE WEEK. WITH MAXIMUM
TEMPERATURES IN THE MID TO UPPER 90S EXPECT MIXING HEIGHTS AROUND
6000 FEET. LOW LEVEL HUMIDITY WILL PERSIST SO HEAT INDEX VALUES
WILL LIKELY RANGE FROM 102 TO 108 FOR MUCH OF THE WEEK.
