DISCUSSION...
Fog has dissipated across the area this morning, leaving
mostly clear skies. Light SE winds will become S/SW with a
sea breeze in the afternoon. Temperatures are on track to
warm into the upper 70s to mid 80s this afternoon. Will
update to remove the fog wording, but rest of forecast is on
track.

AVIATION...
Winds will increase from the SE through the late morning,
then turn onshore near the coast in the afternoon with
mostly clear skies. Winds become light and variable again
after sunset with some patchy fog possible again after
midnight.

MARINE...
High pressure ridging across the waters will keep light
winds and seas through the period. Patchy sea fog will
continue to be possible, though with water temperatures
quickly warming, should be a diminishing threat over the
next few days. Still have a patch over the central and
northern waters this morning, and the advisory will remain
in effect through noon. No major changes for the update.
