out there, seeing one behind me right now but katie, a little bit of these slick conditions, wet on the roadways but then fog, visibility issues. >> that is always a throw you a loop when you walk out the door. even though storm system and frontal boundary made its retreat and we are done with wet weather we have moisture, you still have an nice, light wind and moisture rich and mild air mass. that can allow that fog to form. basically a perfect recipe but storm scan locally no major problems right now and it is glancing view here but when you walk out the door it is a different story. we are at currently modest wind outside tashfeen my use cove nature park. normally you would be seeing portions of center sit the eye sky line. couple lights in the distance but you unless we told you you would never know. 55 degrees currently at that particular off site and that is why partly you have got fog forming and locally it is not terrible every where but you have
