Fog and frost to start, but we’ll be bright again…November 8th, 2012 at 7:10 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
High pressure in the region provided clear skies and light winds overnight, and that has caused frost and fog to form across the region. Visibilities have dropped to below a quarter-mile in spots, and a handful of schools (especially in our northern counties) are running on a two-hour delay. The reduced visibility may slow thing down a bit during the morning drive, and if you’ve parked outdoors, you’ll also need some extra time to scrape that frost off the windshield.
The high slowly drifts across the region today into Friday, keeping us very bright with lots of sunshine. As the high moves just east of the area at the end of the week, we’ll see southerly winds develop:
This will start the warm-up we’ve been talking about all week long. Still expecting upper 50s on Friday, with mid-upper 60s for the weekend! Winds actually increase over the weekend, though, so that will only be the downside to the forecast. Enjoy the warmth while you can… a strong cold front arrives on Monday. Showers and even a few thunderstorms are in the forecast as the front moves through and temperatures DROP again. Highs will only be in the 40s behind the front next week!
