Patchy fog will continue over the bays and nearshore coastal
waters this afternoon. A weak to moderate onshore flow will occur
today and tonight. Onshore wind will increase Monday due to
deepening surface low pressure over the Southern Plains. Isolated
showers and patchy light rain may occur today and Monday. Moderate
onshore flow will persist on Tuesday into Wednesday ahead of an
approaching cold front. The cold front will move through the
