A cool and frosty morning today, with cloud-free skies for most of the state. Patches of fog in the northeast cleared during the morning, while fogs over the southern ranges and slopes persisted until the middle of the day, with cloud remaining over these southern areas.

Overnight minimum temperatures were well below average, with maximum temperatures near average across the state.
