.DISCUSSION...
Light winds and mostly clear skies this evening will set the stage
for fog to develop across eastern Collier County late tonight and
early Saturday morning. Fog mixing with smoke from nearby fires
could lead to sharply reduced visibility. Winds will be light
northwest at 3 mph or less for most of the night, becoming east
during the pre-dawn hours and around daybreak and remaining 3 mph
or less. These conditions will produce poor smoke dispersion
overnight. Visibility should improve between 9 and 10 AM Saturday.
