The fog is expected to lift by Friday afternoon, but mostly cloudy skies will dominate the remainder of the day. Temperatures will climb into the low 70s.
Saturday and Sunday look mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers as a cold front sweeps through the region.
Sunshine returns Monday with afternoon temperatures in the mid-60s and morning lows in the 40s.
