As we move into tonight, the weather will remain mainly clear, but intermittent low clouds may appear locally, primarily along the coast. In the late hours and towards morning, there is a possibility of patchy fog or mist forming in certain areas, particularly in the eastern and southeastern regions. Winds will continue to blow from the southwest to the northwest, later becoming locally variable and weak, at speeds of 3 Beaufort.
