QUESTIONS:

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

2. What are the chances of a seabreeze today, and if so, what effect
will it have on wind speed and direction at our location

3. What are the chances that a change in the timing or the location
of the frontal boundary could result in a northerly or easterly wind
during the daylight hours today

4. According to PointAndClick Forecast, wind speed will be very low
Monday night and Tuesday morning.  Will the frontal boundary to our
north provide enough gradient flow to maintain a southerly or
westerly wind direction  NOTE: it appears the southerly flow was
maintained last night.

5. According to the Area Forecast Discussion, coastal MS may be at a
somewhat higher risk of rain and lightning today.  What timeframe is
this most likely to occur, and how much accumulation may result
