Freezing fog, inversion to cover Mid-Columbia

By the Tri-City HeraldJanuary 3, 2013 

Occasional flurries and freezing drizzle are possible in the Tri-Cities after 10 a.m. today through tonight, according to the National Weather Service.

Patchy freezing fog is in the forecast for the rest of the week and into early next week as strong inversions below 3,000 feet persist for the Mid-Columbia, according to the weather service.

With the inversion trapping air near the surface, air quality may worsen over time as smoke and other particulates remain in a shallow layer at the surface, it said.

High temperatures should be near freezing through the rest of the week and lows should be in the mid- to upper-20s in the Tri-Cities.
