Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
The day started with persistent fog (just like the last 7 days) and chilly temperatures in the valley with clear skies for the most of the state. Changes are on the way though and there is a chance that even though we will remain foggy for the remainder of the week, we will see at least some sun for the second half of the day.
The ridge that is keeping our air stagnant will flatten out slightly tonight, allowing a weak cold front to move on-shore. The coast is already seeing this cloud cover and may even see some very light rain or drizzle overnight. The valley may see brief clearing this afternoon before another round of fog forms tonight. By mid morning Wednesday the front will be long gone and our ridge of high pressure will quickly re-form.
In behind this front strong east winds will develop for Wednesday and Thursday. This is our best bet for seeing clear skies in the valley once the morning fog clears. Highs will stay in the low to mid 40s inland and it’ll be back to the 50s and 60s along the coast.
Have a great day!
