Fog was not too widespread or dense, thanks to winds staying somewhat noticeable. Into the late morning and early afternoon, most of the region was on the dry side, although showers and storms started to fire up. Dew point temperatures were slightly sticky with daytime highs trending cooler than average, as we maxed out in the upper 70s. Scattered showers will stick around as we head into the evening hours.
