DISCUSSION
 
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING DOWN FROM THE NORTH WILL  
PROVIDE DRY AND SEASONABLY COOL WEATHER THROUGH SATURDAY.  
LIGHTER WINDS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY WILL REDUCE VENTILATION  
RATES SOMEWHAT.  
 
FOG POTENTIAL FOR TONIGHT: LOW-LEVEL MIXING COMBINED WITH THE  
DRIER AIR WILL PREVENT FOG DEVELOPMENT.  
 
SURFACE WINDS THURSDAY WILL BE FROM THE NORTHEAST AROUND 5 MPH  
AFTER DAYBREAK, INCREASE TO 5 TO 10 MPH BY AFTERNOON, THEN  
BECOME EAST-NORTHEAST LESS THAN 5 MPH TOWARD EVENING. TRANSPORT  
WINDS WILL BE NORTHEAST AT 15 TO 20 MPH IN THE LATE MORNING,  
THEN 10 TO 15 MPH THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON.
