Our ever present fog stuck around until 10am for the coastal counties along with warmer than normal temperatures for the weekend.

The southerly flow from the Gulf is bringing warm moist air over cooler water and creating the fog issues. We’ll continue to see cloudy skies until Tuesday. The boundary that has been meandering and stationary the past few days will slide south as a cold front Sunday night into Monday and setting up our best chances for rain. The rain amounts will be meager however with about half inch to one inch for the week ahead.

Looking at the ten days ahead we’ll continue to see warmer than normal temperatures with rain punctuating the start and the end of the week and thankfully no freezing temperatures in sight. With the start of March next week the chances of that happening are decreasing rapidly. Stay safe!
