...REMARKS...FOG AND COASTAL CLOUDS WERE THE NAME OF THE GAME THIS
MONTH. TWENTY NINE OF THE DAYS THIS MONTH REPORTED FOG. PERSISTENT
HIGH PRESSURE KEPT THE SIGNIFICANT WEATHER SYSTEMS WELL TO THE NORTH
OF THE AREA. A FEW VERY WEAK WEATHER SYSTEMS BROUGHT SOME DRIZZLE
WHICH ACCOUNTED FOR THE ONLY RAIN OF THE MONTH. THIS IS BELOW NORMAL
FOR RAINFALL WITH ONLY 0.02 FALLING...HOWEVER WITH NORMAL RAINFALL
OF ONLY 0.31 THIS IS NOT THAT FAR FROM NORMAL. THIS FOG AND STRATUS
KEPT HIGH TEMPERATURES A BIT BELOW NORMAL AND LOW TEMPERATURES
NEARLY TWO DEGREES ABOVE.
