Visibility slowly improved this morning after a very foggy start.  A dense fog advisory expired at 9am, but this is what it looked like on our roof cam overlooking the Potomac at 10a this morning.

Ample moisture is in place and as a cold front approaches from the West, it will trigger some showers and isolated thunderstorms this afternoon.  The storms are not expected to be severe.  We actually could use the rain.  Washington, D.C. is down more than 8" since January 1st.  The cold front will pass to our east overnight and we should see improved conditions tomorrow.  Skies will become partly sunny for Tuesday and Wednesday with plentiful sunshine for the end of the week.  Temperatures behind the front will be cooler, but still above average.  Today's record high at Reagan National is 67 degrees.  We will be close to that this afternoon.  But, the rest of the week will have highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s.  Average high is 48.
