If the forecast in Bavaria calls for ‘nebel’ - you’ll know that means fog. In modern German, the word for ‘November’ is ‘November.’ But an older German term for this month was ‘Nebel-mond’ which translates to English as ‘fog month’ - it’s the time of the year when fog is most likely to roll in. In some parts of the world the topography and local climate make fog a regular feature of the weather, especially during certain times of the year. That’s called ‘fog season.’ San Francisco has a fog season as well. Is there a fog season where you live?
