.DISCUSSION...

Skies will remain mostly cloudy through much of the day despite a
relatively dry low-level air mass. Will likely see some decrease in
cloud cover during the afternoon. Moderate, easterly, winds develop
and persist into the afternoon as well. Dry low-levels are balanced
somewhat by cooler temperatures and relative humidities are expected
to drop only into the lower 30 percent range. Winds diminish some
overnight and become southeasterly by sunrise. Dry low-level air mass
and light, but not calm, winds will keep the chances for any fog
formation very low tonight. No dense fog is anticipated, and there is
only a slight chance for some isolated areas of light (visibility 3-5
miles) fog in low-lying, sheltered areas such as creek bottoms.
