QUESTIONS:

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

2. What are the chances of a seabreeze occurring tomorrow, and what
influence will it have on wind speed and wind direction at our
location

3. According to the PointAndClick Forecast, wind speed should remain
well above 5mph Saturday night/Sunday morning. Wind speed would
normally be calm or light and variable during those hours.  Are the
elevated wind speeds due to a pressure gradient between the stalled
frontal boundary to the south, and the area of low pressure to the
west

4. When is the next rain expected at our location, and how much
accumulation
