.DISCUSSION...
An isolated sprinkle is possible through sunset in advance of a
cold front that is quickly approaching from the west. Otherwise,
gusty surface westerly winds of 15-20 mph will continue ahead of
the front, with winds shifting to the northwest around sunset
and remaining in the 10-20 mph range during the early evening
hours. Northwesterly surface and transport winds will subside
towards midnight. A much drier and cooler air mass will then
filter into the Suwannee Valley on Sunday, with relative
humidity values falling below critical levels towards noon and
falling to near 15 percent during the afternoon hours. High
pressure will continue to build over our area, with much lighter
north to northeasterly surface winds expected throughout the day.

FOG POTENTIAL AND OTHER REMARKS...Fog formation is not expected
tonight. Patchy inland fog is possible around sunrise Monday
morning.
