Patchy Areas of Dense Fog, Freezing Fog NE?

March 12th, 2015 at 3:24 am by under Weather

Like yesterday, there will be areas of dense fog this morning.  Unlike yesterday, not all areas will see it.  The worst of the fog looks to be areas east and north of Indy.  Many of those locations are also below freezing, so watch for some slick spots due to the fog freezing on roads.  Randy Ollis and I will track developments on Daybreak at 4:30am

Milder Overnight, Patchy Areas of Fog

March 7th, 2015 at 9:39 pm by under Weather

Temps tonight will drop into the mid 20s.  With some lighter wind expected to move in and a somewhat milder air mass over colder, snow covered ground, we could see a few areas of freezing fog. In some places, the wind may be enough to keep this from forming, so just look out tomorrow morning before you head out.

FOG OVERNIGHT?:  With the clear skies, a warmer air mass, and wind becoming light, we could see some patchy freezing fog develop overnight.  The wind will be around 5-10 mph so it may be enough to keep the fog away, just prepare for it if you have to be out early Sunday morning.

MILD AGAIN SUNDAY:  We will see a mix of sun and clouds return as will the relatively milder air.  It should be enough to get into the low 40s again.

WARMING TREND IN 8-DAY FORECAST:  Milder Pacific air will continue to stream into most of the lower 48 states and provide a warming trend through most of the week.  Highs will climb each day through Thursday.  We should top 50° by Tuesday, then flirt with 60° by Thursday.  We could see some rain chances late Tuesday, then again Friday and Saturday.
