.DISCUSSION...VERY LITTLE IN THE WAY OF ECHOES ON CURRENT RADAR
OVER THE RESCUE SITE. A PATCH OF LIGHT PRECIPITATION DOES APPEAR
TO BE MOVING NORTHWARD TOWARD THE SITE...HOWEVER IT CONTINUES TO
WEAKEN AS IT MOVES NORTH. SHOULD RADAR TRENDS HOLD...WOULD EXPECT
ITS IMPACT TO BE MINIMAL. CEILINGS WILL SEE GRADUAL IMPROVEMENT
TONIGHT AND SOME MINOR VISIBILITY IMPAIRMENTS MAY STILL BE PRESENT
THIS EVENING. AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO BUILD INTO THE
AREA MONDAY...ALLOWING FOR BETTER CEILINGS AND UNRESTRICTED
VISIBILITY.
