Fog Happens....

Compared to Maine and the Canadian Maritimes, fog in Long Island Sound is relatively mild. But we do get our fair share of it this time of year. As a warm air mass moves over the cooler water, the water vapor condenses and fog develops. Water temperatures in the Sound are presently between 50 and 60 degrees while the air temperature has been in the 60's and 70's. This photo was taken along the Mystic River on Thursday morning. By 11 AM the fog had cleared and visibility seemed endless.
