.DISCUSSION...An approaching upper level trough of low pressure
combined with increasing onshore flow is expected to bring
a deepening marine layer to the region, estimated to be around
3500 feet on Friday morning. As a result, this will bring
a cooling trend and higher humidities, especially at elevations
below 3500 feet. Typical onshore winds are expected each
afternoon and evening, shifting to more of a northwest
direction overnight.
