AM fog with isolated showers today, then lots of sunshine this week.
A small disturbance is going to keep showers in the forecast today, although I only expect isolated showers as opposed to the several hours of rainfall we had yesterday. The fog we had early this morning should be breaking up soon if it hasn’t already. After today, high pressure looks to dominate our weather with lots of sunshine and comfortable near-room temperatures through the work week and into the weekend.
