A Foggy Start to a Warm Day

December 2nd, 2012 at 9:00 am by under Weather

A few areas including the Eastern shore had their fair share of fog again this morning. The visibility in Melfa at 6am was just under 1/4 mile. Other areas across the Southside had clear skies overnight, which resulted in patchy frost. As of 9am you can still see the haze on Tower Cam, 2 hours after sunrise.

Foggy Morning

This is the view from our tower camera in Portsmouth looking all of the way towards Town Center in Virginia Beach. The visibility is still over 10 miles, but not unlimited this morning. We are going to see the level of humidity increase as we keep having this wind come out of the south for the coming days. That will mean mild temperatures for all of us.

Getting Close to Records

With this unusual pattern we might be getting close to or setting a record Monday or Tuesday. Normal high temperatures are in the upper 50s this time of year, but with this continue south wind we could see our temperatures in the 70s for the start of the week.

That cold front in Ohio will move closer tonight and may bring in a few scattered light showers for areas north of Hampton this evening. Another cold front will pass by on Wednesday which I am expecting to really cool us off again and bring out temperatures back to normal.

Enjoy the brief warm up for the next few days.
