Chance of Widely Scattered Mist
Laguna Woods, California

Yes ... our weatherman said this morning that we had a chance of widely scattered mist here in Southern California this morning. He said it with a straight face, too! That is definitely not a very ominous weather report, is it. In fact, although it was overcast most of the day, the weather was actually pretty pleasant!

Earlier in the week, the weather forecasters were predicting that it would get down in the mid-20's here in Florida at the end of this week due to a cold arctic air blast pushing through to the south. However, in looking at the forecast this morning, it doesn't look like it will be as bad as they had originally expected...lows are hovering between the upper 30's and lower 40's for the next couple of nights. Thank goodness, because as a Floridian, I'm not ready for 20 degree weather yet!

@JamesHxstatic Sorry. Our forecast is often for 'scattered showers' which, if you use a malapropism, can become 'shattered scours'. Scours is another word for diarrhoea but usually reserved for livestock - sheep, cattle, horses.

I woke up this morning to a heavy blanket of fog here in my community. It's been quite a long time since we've had such a foggy day! We had severe thunderstorms roll through yesterday ahead of a cold front, and now the colder, drier air is working its way down here to Florida. That cold, dry air must be interacting with the warm, humid air from the storms yesterday to create the heavy fog this morning.

@rebelann - Yes, I have been to El Paso many times, so I know what you mean. We have driven from California to Texas ... through El Paso ... more times than I can count, and we always stay at one of the little roadside motels along the way. Also we had some friends who lived in a beautiful home with a spectacular view in El Paso years ago, and enjoyed visiting them there.
@DeborahDiane Well, it seems they are mostly rightish. We are having a cold snap but not as cold as they said. Tomorrow it will be -26C instead of into the -30s as they predicted. With the wind chill, it will feel like -39C. (at -40 both scales are the same)
