UPDATE...
A large mid/upper ridge remains over the region this evening, with
surface high pressure well off to our northeast. The forecast for the
rest of tonight is benign, with light and variable winds and
continued mild temperatures. High cloudiness is expected to move
into the area overnight, which should help reduce fog formation.
Having said that, some patchy shallow ground fog will still be
possible, especially in the low-lying and fog-prone spots. This could
also lead to reduced visibility near the smoldering wildfire in Polk
County, but the likelihood of significant impacts is lower than the
past few nights.

Overall, the current forecast remains on track with no major updates
needed this evening.

MARINE...
High pressure will remain to the northeast through Tuesday, with
favorable boating conditions. A frontal boundary will move through
the area on Wednesday, with a chance for showers and thunderstorms.
Overall, no headlines are expected through the week.
