The morning started out with a dense thick fog, dark and warm around 50’s. The moon was visible in the Western sky. The dawn sky consisted of Gray sky changing it color from dark gray, medium gray and light gray. The sun finally peeked over the low clouds but was shielded by the fog. It looks like the sun has a halo around it. The sun slowly burnt off the fog and the blue sky appeared. It is going to be a beautiful day after the fog is burnt off. Fog Count at 8:00 AM.
