Commuters in the mist: foggy prelude to a sunny week
In this view north from the South Holgate Street overpass, traffic at left heads south out of downtown Seattle in thick fog during Monday morning’s early commute. On a clear day, the city skyline would be visible. The fog is expected to burn off midday, with a sunny afternoon and temperatures in the high 70s. Things will get even warmer later in the week.
