Dense fog could develop along coast early on New Year's Eve

Dense fog could form along the San Diego County coastline early on New Year’s Eve, affecting driving conditions along Interstate 5 at a time when many people will be headed to holiday parties.

“The fog could come in between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., and possibly get blown out to sea around 2 a.m. on (Monday),” said Brandt Maxwell, a forecaster for the National Weather Service.

Maxwell said the the fog would be patchy, and could arise anywhere from Oceanside to Imperial Beach.

Sunday’s overnight temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s along the coast, and in the 30s and 40s in many inland communities. Monday will be overcast, with daytime highs around 66 in San Diego.
