Foggy With Some Thunderstorms This Afternoon
The transition from 30s/40s to temperatures near 60 tonight/early Thursday produces dense fog, scattered rain, thunderstorms, and low visibility. Travel with caution this afternoon with some locations already nearing zero visibility.
Our camera network and surface observations confirm the "pea soup" conditions along/north of a warm front that's lifting into the region. Scattered downpours and thunderstorms also are popping along the leading edge of a warm air surge. Hail is possible in stronger cells this afternoon.
Scattered downpours and locally strong thunderstorms emerge along an approaching warm front this afternoon. Then expect periods of rain and rumbles of thunder into midday Thursday. Dense fog also remains likely tonight into Thursday with a fairly saturated air mass in place and unseasonably high dew points to match.
It's certainly going to be quite the 24 hour temperature ride we're going to take due to this front(s). An unseasonably balmy start Thursday near 60 degrees eventually gives way to winter reality for the ride home from work. A cold front drops readings into the 30s/40s Thursday afternoon.
