evening forecast update...no changes tonight.

Discussion...
main concern if there is one tonight will be high clouds moving
over the area with the approaching upper level trough axis. Only
impact may be slightly warmer min temperatures in the morning but
possible clouds could move out of the area to still allow for
radiational cooling. So kept forecast the same and on track with
current trends.

VFR through the period. Drier air working in from the northeast
overnight should help to limit fog threat across northern sites.
May see some shallow ground fog across our southwestern sites
briefly around sunrise but no significant impacts expected. 38
