Fog only blemish in otherwise great forecast tonight

Dew points have been comfortable all day, though they were lower in the afternoon than they were to start the day. Humidity stays low tonight, and in addition we’ll have a calm wind and clear sky. That will allow temperatures to fall into the lower 50s by tomorrow morning.

Since the wind will be light and temperatures will be close to the dew points, fog will be possible overnight and into tomorrow morning. As has been the case with the several days of fog we’ve already had this week, visibility will be lowest before 7am with some fog lingering through 9am. Make sure to use low beam headlights for your morning commute if you encounter this fog.

Other than that, Thursday looks to be a decent day. Highs will return to the upper 70s, though puffy cumulus clouds will be forming in the afternoon, which also could bring a shower or two.

Better chances for showers and thunderstorms arrive overnight into Friday morning, with showers and storms still possible Friday through Sunday, though they’ll be scattered and there will be time between rounds when it’ll be dry outside. For Sunday, the best chances are earlier in the morning.

Otherwise the weekend will be warmer and humid, feeling like summer. Next week looks to start sunny and dry but still warm and a little humid with high pressure overhead.
