.DISCUSSION...INCREASING ONSHORE FLOW COMBINED WITH A WEAK CATALINA
EDDY CIRCULATION HAS HELPED TO SLIGHTLY INCREASE THE MARINE
LAYER DEPTH. WHILE LOW CLOUDS AND FOG HAVE RETURNED TO OTHER PORTIONS
OF VENTURA COUNTY EARLY THIS MORNING...IT DOES NOT APPEAR THE
MARINE LAYER CLOUDS WILL REACH THE BURN AREA THIS MORNING. THE
INCREASING ONSHORE FLOW COMBINED WITH A SLIGHTLY DEEPER MARINE
LAYER WILL RESULT IN SOME COOLING AND HUMIDITY RECOVERY TODAY.
THE MARINE LAYER DEPTH WILL INCREASE LATER TONIGHT WITH A HIGHER
PROBABILITY OF LOW CLOUDS AND FOG REACHING THE BURN AREA...RESULTING
IN VERY GOOD HUMIDITY RECOVERY.
