Smoke on the water
Ferry traffic is shrouded in sea smoke in New London Harbor on Monday, January 21, 2019.
Sea smoke is formed when very cold air mixes with a shallow layer of saturated warm air immediately above the warmer water. The warmer air is cooled beyond the dew point and can no longer hold as much water vapor, so the excess condenses out.
Monday's bitter cold is expected to moderate, to merely below-average cold on Tuesday, with the forecast for above-average temperatures coming mid-week.
