A cold front brings temperatures down into the low 50s for a high on Tuesday, still warmer than the average temperature in the high 40s for December.

Wednesday may be the chilliest day this week, with a high of about 48 degrees under partly cloudy skies, according to the National Weather Service forecast.

The present fog is leaning toward a "pea souper". grin. I'm glad the fog is not cold enough to make an icy foggy road! No 40 degree winter this year, I'll bet!
