Saturday's fog poised to linger

TAMPA — Thick fog blanketing Tampa Bay on Saturday morning could stick around until midday, according to forecasters.

The haze was beginning to break up just before 10 a.m., said Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker, but because the sun's angle is low at this time of year, it could be awhile before it completely dissipates.

"It's all due to some moisture increasing," Linker said. "Then temperatures cooled overnight, so it's the perfect set-up for fog."

The Florida Highway Patrol is urging caution on area interstates.

If the fog does manage to fade before noon, temperatures could warm up to the 70s from the 40s, Linker said. But if the fog sticks around, Saturday will likely only reach the low 50s before a strong cold front moves in on Sunday.

Expect showers and wind that Sunday, followed by a drizzly, gray Monday, Linker said. Area temperatures may not even reach 50 for the start of the week.
