National Weather Service: Fog to clear as Sun arrives

Patchy, locally-dense fog banks dot the area before 7 a.m. this morning, but the day is set for sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service.

If traveling this morning be aware that visibilities may be reduced to a quarter mile or less over very short distances,” the service noted in a release. “Use extra caution while driving, and set headlights to low beam when encountering fog.”

The fog banks will give way to mostly sunny skies as the day continues; the high temperature is expected to be near 60 degrees. A North wind will blow between seven and 10 miles per hour, according to forecasters.

Tonight, clouds are expected and temperatures are forecasted to dip to around 40 degrees. The North wind will fall slightly to 5 to 8 miles per hour, then shift to an East wind after midnight, according to the National Weather Service.

High pressure is expected to continue to build into the area, bringing drier air, behind Tuesday`s cold front, according to a release. “A strong low pressure system and cold front will bring our next chance for showers and thunderstorms from late Thursday into Friday,” the release notes.
