Although much of the measurable precip has moved out of the
forecast area, lingering low-level stratus with drizzle will
continue to impact much of the area through this evening. As drier
air aloft makes its way into the region, the LL stratus is
forecast to exit the area, opening the door for clearing skies.
However, given the moist grounds and lingering LL moisture, it`s
possible that patchy fog could develop. Should fog develop as
currently forecast, keep in mind that with temps expected to fall
into the 20s area-wide, this would mean the potential for freezing
fog. For tomorrow into early next week, benign weather conditions
are expected to prevail.

The next chance for precipitation arrives in the middle of next
week as a surface low develops and tracks right over the region.
There isn`t much of a discrepancy in the longer-range models with
respect to whether or not precip is going to occur. There are
still some details that will come into better light though as this
time frame gets closer with respect to precip types, timing, etc.
The remainder of the long-term period looks like it should be dry
after the passage of this mid-week system.

Expecting VFR conditions through the night. Fog is a minor
possibility considering the wet ground from recent rains, but
given winds around 5 to 10 kts through the night fog formation
will likely be pretty patchy and brief. Considered a TEMPO for 3
hours around sunrise for temporary reduced VIS due to fog, but
winds prevented official forecast issuance of fog. Will continue
to monitor and amend if needed.
