.DISCUSSION...
Dry weather will prevail through this evening. Surface winds will
become south-southwesterly during the mid-morning hours at speeds
around 5 mph, with speeds gradually increasing to around 10 mph
during the early afternoon hours. Strengthening transport wind
speeds and elevated mixing heights this afternoon will produce
marginally high dispersion values. Minimum relative humidity values
will fall to 40-45 percent by early afternoon. South-southwesterly
surface winds will remain in the 5-10 mph range overnight ahead of
an approaching cold front, with isolated light showers possible by
the predawn hours on Sunday morning.

FOG POTENTIAL AND OTHER REMARKS...Patches of locally dense fog are
possible through the early morning hours, which will quickly
dissipate before the mid-morning hours.
