.DISCUSSION...Winds light and variable today...though if there is any
sustained wind it will most likely remain from an easterly
direction...blowing up the Swift River Valley. The general on shore
flow will help to increase moisture today as well...leaving
minimum relative humidity values much more moderate than previous
days. As things cool off tonight that extra moisture will likely lead
to patchy valley fog. I expect it to be a little more widespread than
last night...and persist until about 9 or 10 AM Monday.
