   winds will shift from SSW to SE intermittently. The strongest
   average wind speeds are representative in this spot for your
   location but strongest wind speeds will be capable of reaching
   at 10-15mph with a few short duration gusts up to 20mph.

2) A moderate inversion will exist today at 2200ft which will weaken and
   rise to 7500ft by this evening. No fog is expected.
