QUESTIONS:

1. Please include a Fog Potential Statement for tonight, tomorrow
morning, tomorrow night, and Monday morning.

2. If there is a seabreeze Sunday, what effect will it have on wind
speed and direction at our location

3. PointAndClick Forecast says surface wind direction will shift to
SW at 6am Monday morning.  Is this due to approaching frontal
boundary  Will the pressure gradient be strong enough late Sunday
night and early Monday morning to maintain a directional flow, even
with the light winds in the PointAndClick Forecast

4. Afternoon temperature did not rise as high as forecasted in the
point forecast matrix for KPQL.  Please explain why this happened,
and if this has any consequences for tomorrows forecast.

5. When is the next rain expected at our location, and how much
should we expect
