The stormy weather and cloud cover from Monday are a thing of the
past for today and through the rest of the work week, with the
potential for storms returning over the weekend.

Looking at the big picture across the amplified pattern
dominates the CONUS this afternoon with a ridge axis over the
Rockies and a deep low helping carve out a trough with an axis just
east of the Mississippi River. This has left our section of the
country under a northwest flow, with a cool dry surface high
building in behind the cold front that pushed through last night.
And, looking at the model solutions for the work week, that pattern
will prevail through the end of the work week, which will likely
result in more weather like what you might remember from early
August, when it was around 80 degrees and fairly dry and pleasant.

Only issue in the near term this week is the potential for fog
tonight, and again Thursday morning, as a cool surface high slides
in and skies remain cloud free. As a result, do expect some issues
with fog both Wednesday and Thursday morning.

Otherwise...expect the next chance for rain to arrive Saturday night
into Sunday.

Fog development at this time looks better than earlier in the day,
so have introduced the mention of some fog for a few hours in the
morning. Confidence is still low/med, but with KSTJ already
saturated the chance for fog seems higher. After sunrise VIS
clears up and VFR conditions persist through the rest of the day.
