GOOD RADIATIONAL COOLING...CALM WINDS...AND SMALL DEWPOINT DEPRESSIONS WILL PRODUCE PATCHY FOG EARLY THIS MORNING...ESPECIALLY NEAR AREA LAKES AND STREAMS. SOME OF THE FOG COULD BE LOCALLY DENSE. .LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/... HIGH PRESSURE AT THE SURFACE WILL PROMOTE A BEAUTIFUL SUNNY DAY ON SUNDAY...WITH WINDS VEERING TO THE SOUTHEAST WHICH /ALONG WITH THE SUNSHINE/ WILL HELP PUSH HIGHS IN THE 75 TO 80 DEGREE RANGE. A WARMING TREND WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEK...AS AN EXTENDED BOUT OF FAIR WEATHER OCCURS. THIS MOSTLY SUNNY/PARTLY SUNNY SKY AND A MAINLY DRY FORECAST WILL BE AIDED BY AN UPPER-HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT WILL BUILD IN OVERHEAD DURING THE MIDDLE TO LATER PART OF THE WORK WEEK. THERE WILL STILL BE ENOUGH MOISTURE UNDERNEATH THE RIDGE TO ALLOW FOR SOME ISOLATED TO WIDELY SCATTERED CONVECTION EACH DAY /MAINLY ALONG THE HIGHER TERRAIN/. HOWEVER...MOST LOCATIONS WILL REMAIN DRY. AS THICKNESS VALUES AND TEMPERATURES ALOFT INCREASE WITH THE STRENGTHENING RIDGE...HIGHS WILL CLIMB INTO THE LOWER 80S EARLY THIS WEEK...AND THE PERHAPS THE MID 80S LATE IN THE WEEK. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...
