Discussion...see updated information for land areas below.

Update...regional surface observations indicate that patchy fog is
beginning to develop across coastal portions of the forecast area
this evening as expected...and with only thin high cloud cover
passing over the region...high resolution and short range guidance
is in good agreement that areas of fog should continue to develop
inland through the night. Conditions remain favorable for some dense
fog development...and will continue to monitor observations for need
of dense fog advisory issuance. Lows are still on track to range from
the lower 50s to around 60. /21
