Nicondra: Expect more fog in the area

The last day of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend will start off on a foggy note for many, but by later in the day pleasant conditions take over. Warm, moist air pushed into the area on easterly and southeasterly winds with a surface high just to the east. The warm air combined with the sinking air beneath an upper ridge allowed temperatures to soar for this time of year. Look for another day in the middle 70s well above the long term average of 68. The upper high means warm and mostly clear conditions for the end of the weekend.

Early morning dense fog will be a problem most days this week. Cool inland waters will help drop the warm moist air moving in down to the dewpoint temperature allowing the moisture to condense. After the fog lifts mostly sunny conditions will prevail during the day. Expect cool, but not cold overnight lows in the mid to upper 50s.
