.DISCUSSION...
Persistent southerly flow around the offshore surface ridge
will continue to support warm temperatures with highs around
80 degrees. South winds expected 5 to 10 mph this afternoon
with transport winds from the south as well around 15 mph.

Abundant low level moisture will likely support at least
patchy fog development again tonight and possibly dense
at times, though confidence is lower in dense fog.
