11:20 pm
a.m., thick fog in areas like annapolis, washington, up around baltimore and manassas as well. i would not be surprised in the national weather service issues a dense fog advisory overnight, and that would go until about 8:00, 9:00 a.m. once we get past 8:00 a.m., we start to see any fog lift across the area and break up. then after that, temperatures really soar tomorrow. the morning is going to be completely different from the afternoon. currently we're in the mid-to-upper 40s. 47 in washington and 46 in leesburg. this is still what we're dealing with in the morning hours. it's damp. it's dreary. it's chilly out there. we're dealing with fog and some showers, wet roads as well, potentially slowing down that commute. but once we start to hit 9:00, 10:00 a.m., we see improvements. by lunch time some hazy sunshine starting to develop. look at this. near 70 degrees by tomorrow at noon. a high temperature tomorrow of 76, but unfortunately as we warm, i can't rule out some isolated showers between about 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. but the midday and afternoon hours
