Warm and muggy, feels like spring

It's the first day of December, but it feels more like March. 

Warm temperatures are in store as we go through the week. An upper ridge of high pressure is settled over the eastern part of the country keeping conditions dry and warm temperatures in place. 

The high will prevent any fronts from pushing past us over the next several days. A surface high will continue to allow plenty of moisture to flow into the area with a strong southeast flow. 

The building moisture provides fuel for late night and early morning dense fog. Other than the fog, the weather will be pleasant with partly cloudy conditions There will be little chance for rain with high temperatures in the upper 70s, near 80. 

Overnight lows will be mild in the upper 50s.
