QUESTIONS:

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

2. According to the PointAndClick Forecast, there should be a wind
shift from South to SW early tomorrow evening.  Apparently the timing
of this wind shift hinges on the progression of a front that is
approaching our area.  What are the chances of the wind shift
occurring earlier in the day

3. What are the chances of a seabreeze occurring Thursday  If so,
please note timeframe, direction, and the influence it may have on
wind speed at our location.
