.DISCUSSION...
Overall quiet period is in store today before more wetting rain
and thunderstorm chances move back into the area late tonight and
tomorrow. 20ft winds this afternoon should gust around to just
below 20mph or so but remain mostly on the weaker side through the
weekend. Humidity levels will stay above critical levels this
weekend. Widespread fog potential will remain low through the
weekend due to widespread rain chances but could not rule out some
patchy fog due to increasing moisture. However it is highly
unlikely due to enough wind around.
