January 12th, 2013 at 9:37 am by under Weather

A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for the entire region until 11AM this morning. Watch out for visibilities below 1/4 of a mile.

Dense Fog Advisory

Since the winds are light, the fog will be slow to dissipate across the region. Check out the view of our tower camera around 8:45AM. This has been the case over the past few hours.

The fog should clear out around noon. Once the fog lifts, some of the clouds should break up and we should see some sunshine later today with highs in the mid 60s.

Saturday’s Set-Up

A wind shift line (weak cold front) will slide onshore today. This boundary will switch winds from the southwest to the northeast. Therefore, coastal areas will be slightly cooler than inland locations. This wind shift line will move through the Northern Neck, the Middle Peninsula and the Eastern Shore this morning. With northeasterly winds most of the day, highs will only reach the upper 50s and lower 60s across these areas. Winds should shift across the Peninsula and Southside this afternoon, so it should be a bit warmer with highs in the mid 60s. Inland locations and areas in North Carolina will see temperatures near 70° later today.

Sunday will be even warmer! Highs will be in the lower 70s for most of us. The record high temperature to beat on Sunday is 76 degrees back in 1890. I think we will stay below record levels tomorrow, but it will be close. Big changes are on the way next week. Another cold front will move in on Monday bringing a good chance for rain and colder weather back to the forecast. Enjoy the warm weather while it lasts!
