Short term (tonight through Wednesday night)...high pressure
ridge fully in control now of short term forecast period. Deep
layer moisture will stay rather dry with precipitable water values around an
inch. But near surface moisture will stay elevated...and gradually
increase due to onshore flow. Expect another chance for fog
tonight as light winds are expected to develop. Think fog will
likely develop a bit earlier than last night due to the full day
of southeasterly flow across the region. Min temperatures again in the
lower 70s both tonight and tomorrow night. Highs warming Wednesday
into the upper 80s and low to middle 90s.

Long term (thursday through tuesday)...upper ridge remains anchored
with precipitable waters around or below 1.5 inches through the period. Ergo...no
rainfall is expected although could not rule out a rogue shower or
two from time to time. Minimum temperatures actually not too bad for
this time of year (around 70/low 70s) but then increase toward the
end of the period as moisture gets a bit better. Moist grounds
should mean daytime temperatures at worst near normal. Overall...did
not mess with superblend temperatures days 4-8.
