Dense fog, mist and drizzle early Sunday will eventually yield to a mostly cloudy afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 50s.  After some showers tonight, tomorrow will be sunnier and warmer. 

This Afternoon: Mostly Cloudy, Seasonably Cool

Highs: 55-60 | Wind: S 5-10 mph

Tonight: Chance of Showers, Mild

Lows: 43-49 | Rain: 50% Chance

Monday: AM Fog, Turning Mostly Sunny, Warm

Highs: 63-67 | Wind: W 5 mph

Areas of dense fog are still making travel difficult this morning, but  visibilities are improving.  The earlier Dense Fog Advisory was cancelled shortly after 10 AM.  Even as the fog erodes, high clouds will keep most of the day overcast with just limited periods of sunshine. Highs today should reach the mid 50s.

A cold front is poised to move through later this evening with the possibility of a few showers. After yet another morning of patchy fog, Monday will feature a southerly flow that should warm the DC area into the mid 60s.  Yet more unseasonable warmth is likely on Tuesday before yet another front brings the chance of rain and somewhat cooler readings on Wednesday.  Thereafter, lower dewpoints and chillier air will see us through the end of the week.  Enjoy your Sunday!

NOTE: The silent arrival of this morning's fog recalls Carl Sandburg's poetic description of fog. "The fog comes on little cat feet.  It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on."
