Foggy in the morning, windy in the afternoon

Wednesday dawned as another foggy day, giving way to wind and possibly rain.

"It's going to be a gusty day today," said Bay News Nine meteorologist Juli Marquez. "Scattered showers are in the forecast for the next couple of days."

Temperatures should be in the upper 70s and lower 80s, she said. But a cold front moving in Wednesday night should cool down the area into the 60s for the next few days.

This morning, low-level moisture allowed areas of dense fog to form, restricting visibility to half a mile or less in some areas, the National Weather Service said.

The area had the right ingredients for fog: lower temperatures, a light wind and moisture close to the ground. The cool air and light breeze condense the moisture, which forms droplets in the air.

The fog was supposed to be gone by 9 a.m.
