Freezing Fog Advisory And Air Quality Alert Plus Our Big Warm Up

Freezing Fog Advisory And Air Quality Alert Plus Our Big Warm Up

Monday February 4 2019

Last night might have been the lowest score in the Super Bowl History, but at least we have come out of the lowest temperatures. We still have some cold air and freezing temps around. Combine that with fog and we have some advisories this morning. This once again my be confusing, but I can only pass along what your local National Weather Service Office issues and point out what is missing.

Temps will warm today and this week overall. Reminder that if you live by the water where there is ice, temperatures may be 10 to 20 degrees cool there.

The Air Quality alert is due to light wind with warmer air aloft and cold ground/ice on the water.  This allows pollution partials build up and what the air quality goes down.

 

Freezing Fog Advisory (Delaware ad New Jersey)

Air Quality Alert (West of the Chesapeake Bay/along I-95 to metro Philadelphia)

The Eastern Shore of Maryland often says they are ignored, and I understand. There is fog and Caroline County has a school delay, but no advisory. Please be careful driving as cold air with the fog may cause some spots to be icy.

 

Morning  Temperatures

Many areas in the 20s in areas where there is fog, but not an advisory… can lead to icy spots. Just drive with caution. Especially on bridges and overpasses.
