Foggy overnight, wet & windy Tuesday
Areas of dense fog blanket parts of southern New England tonight.
The cloud base hovers around 200-400 feet tonight which means that inland, higher elevated regions will experience the heaviest fog overnight into Tuesday morning.
Persistent mist will continue overnight as well as a warm front sits off to our southwest. This front WILL lift through Tuesday morning but some of the steadier rain will arrive later in the morning and last through roughly 4PM.
Milder temps move in early Tuesday and will be with us into the afternoon. Of course, the southerly wind off the chilly ocean will keep coastal temperatures mainly in the upper 40s to near 50. But farther inland highs should reach the mid to upper 50s.
Most areas should pick up about an inch of rain Tuesday by the time the storm shifts to our east in the early evening.
One thing for us to keep an eye on, however, is the potential for some damaging wind gusts Tuesday, especially near the coastline. South wind MAY gust over 40mph at times in these locations, scattered power outages are possible.
Cooler, drier weather will follow this storm and the remainder of the week looks more like late January should, highs in the 30s and lows in the teens and lower 20s through Friday.
