1. Please include a Fog Potential Statement for tonight, tomorrow
morning, tomorrow night, and Friday morning, specifying Type of Fog

2. What are the chances of wind remaining above 5mph Thursday night
Will the gradient be strong enough to maintain a directional flow if
the wind drops below 5mph

we will once again experience unusually low RHs the next time we get
