FOX 5's Sue Palka says the low clouds, patchy fog and spotty drizzle that we are seeing early this morning are a result of the southeast wind transporting a moist flow from the ocean and keeping temperatures in the comfortable 50s.

By mid-afternoon we should be several degrees warmer than yesterday as we head for the mid and upper 70s. A perfectly comfortable afternoon and evening for anything you need or want to do outside.

More of the same on tap for much of the work week!
