Fog, it’s a fickle forecastNovember 20th, 2012 at 8:40 pm by Jonathan Conder under Weather
Forecasting fog is not easy and the amount of fog we will see Wednesday morning will determine our high temperature. When it comes to Wednesday, it could play out in three different ways:
- Dense fog forms and lingers into the early afternoon and we miss the high temperature.
- Fog forms, but burns off by lunch be we nail the high temperature.
- The fog never forms and it is ends up being warmer than expected.
Depending on how much fog we see, we could end up with highs ranging from the lower 50s to the lower 60s. Unfortunately, forecast fog is just as hard as nailing a snow forecast because of all the variables involved. These variable include how deep the fog layer is and how much wind is there in the afternoon to mix the fog out with drier air. Needless to say, there is a big “bust” factor when it comes to forecasting high temperatures likes these.
