.DISCUSSION...UPPER AIR PATTERN REMAINS SOUTHWESTERLY WHILE A
STRONGER LOW LEVEL MARINE PUSH SHOULD INCREASE DEW POINTS SLIGHTLY
TODAY. THUS EXPECT HUMIDITY TO TICK A NOTCH HIGHER GIVEN SIMILAR
TEMPERATURES. AM INCLINED TO KEEP THUNDERSTORM THREAT SOUTH AND EAST
OF THE INCIDENT BUT CANT ABSOLUTELY RULE OUT ONE IMPACTING THE
IMMEDIATE AREA. BETTER THREAT RETURNS THURSDAY. NO IMPACT TO AIR OPS
FROM CLOUDS OR VISIBILITY EXCEPT FOR POTENTIAL LOCAL IMPACTS FROM
MORNING TRAPPED VALLEY SMOKE. WOULD EXPECT ANY TRAPPED SMOKE WOULD
LIFT AT A SIMILAR TIME TO THE LAST FEW DAYS.
