        Fog likely again overnightFog likely again overnight

        Tonight, we will have more foggy conditions develop after midnight. This is likely because of the high dew points, and temperatures cooling overnight, along with the lower winds. Temperatures will cool down to the lower 60s overnight. Thursday will be like what we saw today. The day will start out with fog in the area. We will then have partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be warm with highs in the lower 80s. Fog will form again overnight Thursday into Friday.
