Dense fog advisory for Ann Arbor; warm day on tap before cold moves in

By Cindy Heflin

Dense fog could plague drivers in the Ann Arbor area until the early afternoon hours Monday, the National Weather Service warns.

The weather service has issued a dense fog advisory in effect until 2 p.m. Monday. Fog will reduce visibilities to less than a quarter mile in some areas, the weather service warned. Visibility is expected to improve to more than half a mile during the afternoon.

In Washtenaw County, fog is expected to be especially dense in the Chelsea area, the weather service said.

The fog comes in the midst of a period of unseasonably warm weather in the Ann Arbor area. But a change is in store starting Tuesday.

The high today will be about 61 degrees, but along with the fog, the warm weather will come with periods of drizzle, forecasters say.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely Monday night, with a low around 55 degrees.

Showers are likely Tuesday, mainly before 11 a.m. Then skies will begin to clear, but the temperature will drop to about 50 by 5 p.m., the National Weather Service said. Temperatures will keep falling overnight with a low of about 31 expected.

Wednesday it will be mostly sunny, but the high is only expected to reach 37.

Oh, to be perfect like all the posters that read news articles and weather reports just to point out mistakes by others.

No one said we were perfect. But this is our city's only legitimate news source and we expect them to be professional in their writing. I did journalism in high school, and granted we weren't daily journalism, we never would have sent something out like that. Everything gets at least a second check.

Does this mean the Lions are going to lose again Wednesday?


Mon, Dec 3, 2012 : 2:27 p.m.

If Wednesday is mostly Sunday, does that mean I have to go to work? Or do I go to work in my pajamas and expect to watch football?

Typical of to not proof read their writing! Gosh....gee!

Please folks, turn your lights on while driving. It's just crazy in fog like this to drive without any lights on.

Why would someone vote this down?

"Wednesday it will be mostly Sunday, but the high is only expected to reach 37." Huh??? Also, didn't you earlier say that "The high Wednesday will be about 61 degrees"?
