2/21 – Rob Knight’s “Muggy” Monday Morning Forecast
Temperatures are expected to be well above normal with lows warming to the mid 60s, highs climbing to the upper 70s by midweek. The fog risk will peak both Tuesday and Wednesday nights. The fog will likely be dense at times, and will be slow to clear during the morning hours on Wednesday. In fact, the nearshore marine zones and locations along the immediate coast may stay fogged in throughout the entire day given the ideal fog conditions in place. Dense fog is expected to spread back inland Wednesday night and linger through Thursday morning.
An approaching cold front from the northwest will move into the region beginning Tuesday. As the front moves closer to the area, decreasing upper level support will cause the front to stall just to the north. This stalled front along with a series of disturbances riding along the boundary will keep low rain potential in the forecast through the workweek. Daytime temperatures will be about 10 degrees above seasonal average through Friday.
