Foggy Start to Warm Weekend


By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Jan. 9, 2016 – South Florida will be warm this weekend, after a foggy start on Saturday. A dense fog advisory was in place early Saturday morning, with visibility very restricted in many inland locations.

More showers on Sunday night will be followed by passage of a cold front overnight.

Monday will be cloudy, showery, and cooler, with highs just reaching the low 70s.

Tuesday will be another cool day with highs in the low 70s, even with more sun.

Look for more showers and another shot of cooler air on Wednesday, when highs will struggle to reach the low 70s.
