Weather forecast as follows :

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Courier New";color:black">Fog has developed in the Bays and in the near shore waters tonight  and will persist through the next couple of days, although it could  wane for a few hours during the day today in the Bays. Seas of 6 to  8 feet in the off shore waters has resulted in a Small Craft  Advisory being issued through the noon today. Seas in the near  shore waters will be 3 to 5 feet, so caution flags have been issued  through the morning there. A cold front will approach the coastline  late tonight into early tomorrow morning before stalling out and  retreating back inland during the day on Tuesday. If it makes it to  the coast it could provide a brief reprieve from the fog in the  Bays. As the front nears the coast it will also bring isolated to  scattered showers. A stronger front will push off the coast  Wednesday morning bringing an end to the fog threat but will usher  in moderate to strong offshore flow on Thursday.
