Near Term Update

NEAR TERM [THROUGH TONIGHT]...
QUIESCENT CONDITIONS NEAR THE CENTER OF A LOW-LEVEL ANTICYCLONE ARE
EXPECTED TO PERSIST TONIGHT. AS A WEAK COLD FRONT BEGINS TO APPROACH
THE NORTHERN PART OF THE FORECAST AREA CLOSE TO 12Z, WINDS MAY
INCREASE SLIGHTLY IN THAT AREA, BUT THEY SHOULD REMAIN CALM WITH A
FAIRLY STRONG INVERSION OVER THE SOUTHERN HALF OF OUR AREA. THE
INVERSION COULD COME INTO PLAY OVER PARTS OF THE AREA GIVEN THE
NUMBER OF FIRES THAT ARE CURRENTLY EVIDENT ON SATELLITE AND RADAR.
POOR MIXING WITH INCREASING NEAR-SURFACE RH COULD BE SUFFICIENT TO
LEAD TO SOME LOCALIZED REDUCTIONS IN VISIBILITY WITH A COMBINATION
OF SMOKE AND FOG. THIS WILL BE MONITORED CLOSELY DURING THE EVENING
HOURS FOR POSSIBLE INCLUSION OF FOG IN THE FORECAST, OR LOCALIZED
ADVISORIES DEPENDING ON HOW THINGS EVOLVE.
