.DISCUSSION...
Not looking for any showers through the evening hours. There will be a
slight chance during the overnight hours. Overnight hours patchy fog...
more like a mixture of fog and smoke together but visibility is expected
to remain above three miles. Tomorrow will be a repeat of today as there
is no real weather systems expected to influence a chance in this pattern.
I would like to mentioned that the system expected in the gulf if
forecast track is correct will bring in drier and hotter air into the
region late in the weekend. We will just have to wait on how that plays
out. It will be hot and muggy tomorrow.
