Yes, it’s a foggy morning in San Antonio on Tuesday, February 28. However, it isn’t due to the West Texas dust storm that has caused hazy and foggy mornings in Dallas and the Fort Worth area, according to the National Weather Service.

Instead, NWS meteorologist Bob Fogerty told MySA that the fog was produced by a combination of the cool weather in the area, as well as the winds from the southeast, which has brought in moisture in the air. With the combination of both, San Antonio now has low visibility Tuesday morning. Fogerty said the fog will stick around until the afternoon.

While it will be gone soon, Fogerty said the hazy and foggy morning will be back this week. He said a cold front from the west will bring high winds and moisture to San Antonio starting in the evening of Thursday, March 2. It will cause the mornings to look hazy the next day on Friday, March 3.

The cold front is called a Pacific cold front, which originates over the Pacific Ocean and approaches us from the west. They usually bring us a large dose of dry air more so than cold air, which leads to cool mornings and mild afternoons. These fronts are common in the spring and fall.

Fogerty said San Antonio will likely see a colorful sunset and sunrise on Thursday and Friday, as well as a chance of low visibility. He noted drivers should slow down in fog while leaving more space between themselves and the vehicle in front of them. 

Behind the cold front are also chances of strong to severe storms on the city’s Northeast Side. The storms will be isolated and may produce hail and damaging winds.
