DEEPER TONIGHT AS THE WEAK AREA OF LOW PRESSURE TRACKS
EASTWARD ALONG THE GULF COAST. THE LOW WILL SHIFT OFF THE
SOUTHEAST COAST SATURDAY. THE PATTERN WILL SUPPORT AN
INCREASING CHANCE OF RAIN TONIGHT WITH RAIN OVER MUCH OF
THE AREA SATURDAY.

PATCHY FOG MAINLY NEAR BODIES OF WATER WILL OCCUR DURING
THE EARLY MORNING HOURS TODAY. AREAS OF FOG MAY OCCUR IN
AREAS OF RAIN LATE TONIGHT AND SATURDAY.
