(Tonight and Tomorrow)...Any afternoon diurnal convection should quickly dissipate with the setting sun as we remain largely under the influence of a persistent ridge. Overnight conditions will mirror last night`s, warm, humid, and mostly clear skies. This will once again allow for patchy fog to develop across the forecast area. Also, decided to included some patchy dense fog based on some of this mornings observations. The patchy dense fog should remain concentrated near area rivers and lakes. Lows tonight will be in the upper 60s and low 70s. Fog burns off tomorrow morning shortly after sunrise and temps heat up once again. Mid-level moisture more widespread tomorrow with the ridge ever so slightly shifting eastward. Will therefore have slight chance pop in everywhere, and chance in the high terrain of the eastern mountains. Highs tomorrow will be in the low-to-mid 90s. With dewpoints remaining elevated heat indices will again be in the upper 90s to near 100 in some spots. .LONG TERM...(Saturday night through Friday)...A ridge of high pressure will remain the dominant weather feature for much of the extended forecast period, bringing continued above normal temperatures. Diurnal heating combined with a few weak disturbances will bring the chance for isolated convection over at least the highest elevations each day. Model consistency of finer details begins to digress by the end of the period, and for now will carry low pops for this time frame.
