Commuters Wednesday morning need to allow themselves extra time on the roads. Thick fog has developed overnight and has prompted a dense fog advisory across the area. Visibility for many have dropped below a ¼ mile. Right now, that advisory stays in effect until 10 am. If winds pick up this morning, we may see that cancelled early, but confidence in that scenario is low.
In addition to low visibility, freezing fog is a concern this morning too. Especially around bridges and overpasses. Many spots are already reporting conditions at or below freezing. As these suspended water droplets collect on the surface, we can’t rule out a little ice forming, meaning the chance for slick spots on the road.
Keep in mind, this is a school day. Kids will be at the bus stop this morning. Be sure to drive safely and slowly as you’re heading out the door.
More than 70 school delays have come in this morning. You can find a full list of them here.
We have another mild day in store. Wednesday will take our above average temperature streak from 26 days to 27. While temperatures will rise into the low 50s this afternoon, winds picking up, gusting at 20+ mph, will make it feel several degrees cooler.
A cold front moves through this evening and brings our first shot of cold air this week. By Thursday morning, temperatures will drop into the mid 20s and only rise to the mid 30s by the afternoon.
After that, our focus will turn to the system that will bring some messy conditions as we close out the work week and head into the weekend. We have the chance for a wintry mix by Friday evening that will change to rain as temperatures rise into early Saturday. The messy start to the weekend will transition into a drier/cold end by Sunday.
