NEWTOWN, Conn -- The National Weather Service says Newtown residents can expect well-above normal temperatures Monday, with a shower or two, in addition to dangerous fog in areas.
Some of this fog will be locally dense and may become widespread later this morning. Residents should be alert for rapidly lowering visibilities, slow down and allow extra time to reach your destination, officials with the National Weather Service said.
