Discussion...
much of convective activity that developed this afternoon has
waned but a few cells have redeveloped in the warm and moist air
mass that is in place across the region. Previous forecast
included very low probability of precipitation across eastern half of County Warning Area for much of the
overnight period. We do not believe there will be much coverage
overnight but probably a nonzero chance so not much point in
taking out such a small pop that is already there. Some patchy
light fog possible overnight...especially areas that saw rain
today. All in all...no need to make any changes to ongoing
forecast this evening.
