Forecast for Monday, November 12, 2012

Skies will be clear much of this evening. However, a wind direction off of the ocean will bring in moisture across the interior which should lead to the development of fog. The fog has the potential to be dense by the early morning hours. The fog will dissipate as the morning progresses and the sun rises. However, there will be a lot more cloudiness on Monday, although a few peaks of sun from time to time are likely. How fast the fog burns off will determine how high we go on Monday. I could see an isolated 70 degree temperature if the fog were to dissipate fast enough. However, on the other side of the coin, I could see temperatures struggle to rise past 60 degrees if the fog stays into the late morning hours.

A cold front will approach the region late on Monday and move through on Tuesday Morning. Colder air comes in right behind the front. However, it does appear we may see a very early morning high temperature (perhaps just after midnight) before they crash. The front will bring some scattered showers and perhaps a brief uptick in the winds.

The rest of the week looks to be quiet in our region, assuming the models are correct with the cold front stalling far enough offshore that it doesn't impact us. Eventually, early next week, conditions become favorable for the development of a low pressure area to our east. Does it come close enough to the coast to give us problems? Only time will tell! We will keep an eye on it this week.
