A foggy start, still warm and humidAugust 29th, 2013 at 8:26 am by Tara Hastings under Weather
There is a lot of moisture in the air and that’s causing patch fog in many locations. There is a Dense Fog Advisory in effect until 10am.
There have been several dozen school delays because of the fog. To check those school click here.
The fog is going to dissipate around 10am and we’ll see some sunshine for the afternoon. Temperatures will be a few degrees lower than yesterday but it will still feel uncomfortable. Dew point values again will be in the upper 60′s and lower 70′s thru the holiday weekend.
Yesterday we saw highs in the 90′s and we added another 90 degree day to our summer tally. We still are below normal as far as how many 90 degrees we average in a summer.
The heat and humidity will continue for the holiday weekend. Our jet stream or storm track continues to have a large area of high pressure overhead.
Our jet pattern changes for the end of the weekend/Monday. A cold front will bring much more comfortable conditions Tuesday and Wednesday.
Until then we’ll feel the heat and humidity. It will be dry for Thursday and Friday.
We’ll see several chances for rain on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. We could really use the rain! We’re about an inch below normal for the month.
