Local forecast

Fog overnight into early Wednesday

  • The setup continues to look like we’ll see some fog overnight and early Wednesday.
  • Densest fog will probably be in the west zone, where the most rain has fallen over the past 2 days.

Rain returns Thursday into Friday

  • Most of Wednesday should be dry after morning fog, but closer to 10 p.m. or 11 p.m., a few showers try to move in from the south.
  • This rain lingers through Thursday and Friday -- maybe even Saturday morning as well.

Weekend rain chances

  • A bit of a question mark surrounds this weekend and early next week as long-range models differ some.
  • There’s the chance for a few showers early Saturday, but the majority of the day looks OK now.
  • Sunday we can’t rule out a few showers as another system approaches from the west, but there’s some discrepancies here between long range models.
