THE STORMY WEATHER AND CLOUD COVER FROM MONDAY ARE A THING OF THE  
PAST FOR TODAY AND THROUGH THE REST OF THE WORK WEEK, WITH THE  
POTENTIAL FOR STORMS RETURNING OVER THE WEEKEND.  
 
LOOKING AT THE BIG PICTURE ACROSS THE NATION...AN AMPLIFIED PATTERN  
DOMINATES THE CONUS THIS AFTERNOON WITH A RIDGE AXIS OVER THE  
ROCKIES AND A DEEP LOW HELPING CARVE OUT A TROUGH WITH AN AXIS JUST  
EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER. THIS HAS LEFT OUR SECTION OF THE  
COUNTRY UNDER A NORTHWEST FLOW, WITH A COOL DRY SURFACE HIGH  
BUILDING IN BEHIND THE COLD FRONT THAT PUSHED THROUGH LAST NIGHT.  
AND, LOOKING AT THE MODEL SOLUTIONS FOR THE WORK WEEK, THAT PATTERN  
WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE END OF THE WORK WEEK, WHICH WILL LIKELY  
RESULT IN MORE WEATHER LIKE WHAT YOU MIGHT REMEMBER FROM EARLY  
AUGUST, WHEN IT WAS AROUND 80 DEGREES AND FAIRLY DRY AND PLEASANT.  
 
ONLY ISSUE IN THE NEAR TERM THIS WEEK IS THE POTENTIAL FOR FOG  
TONIGHT, AND AGAIN THURSDAY MORNING, AS A COOL SURFACE HIGH SLIDES  
IN AND SKIES REMAIN CLOUD FREE. AS A RESULT, DO EXPECT SOME ISSUES  
WITH FOG BOTH WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY MORNING.  
 
OTHERWISE...EXPECT THE NEXT CHANCE FOR RAIN TO ARRIVE SATURDAY NIGHT  
INTO SUNDAY.

FOG DEVELOPMENT AT THIS TIME LOOKS BETTER THAN EARLIER IN THE DAY,  
SO HAVE INTRODUCED THE MENTION OF SOME FOG FOR A FEW HOURS IN THE  
MORNING. CONFIDENCE IS STILL LOW/MED, BUT WITH KSTJ ALREADY  
SATURATED THE CHANCE FOR FOG SEEMS HIGHER. AFTER SUNRISE VIS  
CLEARS UP AND VFR CONDITIONS PERSIST THROUGH THE REST OF THE DAY.
