Areas of Fog Next Few Mornings

** Dense Fog Advisory in effect from 10 PM tonight through 10 AM on Tuesday **

Fog will continue to be our primary weather concern over the next few days. Visibilities only got as low as 6 miles at metro Baton Rouge this morning, but many other locations reported visibilities under a quarter-mile. While winds will stay in the 5-10 mph range overnight, the threat of dense fog will be returning, so be alert for reduced visibilities if you’ll be driving late tonight or on Tuesday morning.

Otherwise, Tuesday and Wednesday are shaping up to be quite similar to today. Look for mostly cloudy skies, breezy and warm weather, along with a slight chance of a sprinkle or shower. Depending on the amount of sunshine in your neighborhood, highs will likely range from the low to mid 80°s.

Good rain chances will arrive late in the week as our next cool front moves in from the west. Widespread showers and t-storms are expected late Thursday night into Friday morning as the front moves through. Early indications point toward at least some threat of severe weather as well.

The good news is that skies should clear by Friday afternoon and give way to a beautiful weekend. Somewhat cooler and less humid weather is expected for a few days, with lows dipping into the 40°s over the weekend and highs topping out in the low-mid 70°s.
