.AVIATION...
DEWPOINTS WERE RISING INTO THE LOWER 50S ALONG THE NEARSHORE
WATERS. WITH THE WATER TEMPERATURE ALSO IN THE LOWER 50S...THE
POTENTIAL FOR SEA FOG DEVELOPMENT WAS BEGINNING TO DEVELOP.
HOWEVER...A SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE OVER THE MISSISSIPPI
VALLEY INTO SE TX WILL DRIFT EASTWARD TONIGHT INTO THE WESTERN
GULF. THIS WILL KEEP THE FETCH ALONG THE COAST OR OFF THE LAND
AREAS AND LOWER THE CHANCES FOR SEA FOG FORMATION. WITH A BIT OF
INCREASED SURFACE MOISTURE...AT LEAST PATCHY GROUND FOG MAY AFFECT
THE AIRPORTS AFTER ABOUT 06Z THROUGH 15Z. AN INCREASE IN THE
SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL THEN HELP INCREASE SOUTHERLY WINDS
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.
