DISCUSSION
 
UPPER RIDGE WILL BE BUILDING IN OVER THE REGION THIS  
WEEK. THE MARINE LAYER WILL BE MUCH MORE SHALLOW YET STILL BE HIGH  
ENOUGH TO ALLOW LOW CLOUDS TO MOVE IN OVER THE SPOT FORECAST AT 400  
FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL. THERE IS A 30 PERCENT CHANCE THAT LOW CLOUDS  
COULD SCOUR OUT BEFORE SUNRISE DUE TO NORTHEAST FLOW. SIMILAR PATTERN  
IS EXPECTED THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK.
