DIURNAL CUMULUS HAS DISSIPATED AND WINDS ARE CALM WITH SURFACE HI IN CONTROL. T/TD SPREADS ARE VARIABLE ACROSS THE AREA RANGING FROM 6F TO 13F AT 01Z...AND GIVEN FCST SNDGS THINK THE VALLEYS WILL FOG TONIGHT RATHER DEEPLY WITH SHALLOW FOG OTHER AREAS. ADDED THIS TO THE GRIDDED FORECAST EMPHASIZING VALLEYS/DRAINAGE AREAS. MORE WIDESPREAD/DENSE FOG SIGNAL IS WELL SOUTHWEST OF THE ILN FORECAST AREA PER NWP BUT CAN/T RULE OUT A POCKET OR TWO HERE.

HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER THE UPPER GREAT LAKES WILL PASS INTO NEW ENGLAND DURING THE PERIOD. RIDGING FROM THIS WILL EXTEND INTO THE OHIO VALLEY THROUGH THE ENTIRE SHORT TERM. THIS WILL KEEP A DRY AIR MASS IN PLACE WITH A GRADUAL WARMING TREND.
