.DISCUSSION...
High pressure building into the area from the Midwest as low
pressure system moves well offshore. Relatively tight pressure
gradient this morning will be relaxing in the afternoon, so gusty
northeast winds this morning will be diminishing in the afternoon.
Air mass dry by Saturday with afternoon relative humidity in the
25 to 30 percent range. Increasing moisture late Sunday as warm
front approaches. Rain returns Monday as a low pressure system
moves into the southeastern States.

Fog potential for tonight: air mass dry and fog not forecast.
