.DISCUSSION...A STRONG INVERSION HAS DEVELOPED EARLY THIS MORNING
AND THIS IS LEADING TO PATCHY AREAS OF DENSE FOG. EXPECT THE
INVERSION TO MIX OUT QUICKLY AFTER SUNRISE...LEADING TO A WELL-
MIXED BOUNDARY LAYER LATE THIS MORNING AND AFTERNOON AS
SOUTHERLY WINDS BEGIN TO DEVELOP ON THE BACK SIDE OF DEPARTING
HIGH PRESSURE. INCREASED SOUTHERLY FLOW AND MOISTURE TRANSPORT
TONIGHT MAY LEAD TO ANOTHER ROUND OF FOG AND LOW STRATUS. FIRE
WEATHER DANGER SHOULD REMAIN ON THE LOW SIDE GIVEN RELATIVELY
HIGH AFTERNOON HUMIDITY VALUES.
