Your weekend starts with a bit of an issues on roads as patchy, but dense fog is present. A DENSE FOG ADVISORY is in effect until 10 am today accounting for the fog and the issues it could cause. Visibility will be down to less than a quarter of a mile for some and could be as low as a few feet at times. Keep in mind that roads could be slippery due to mist or drizzle produced by the fog.

Once the sun comes up and starts to heat the surface air, the fog will lift and break apart. Clouds will hand tough through much of the morning but by midday we’ll all have a little sun therapy. That sunshine and heating will cause building cumulus and eventually showers and storms. Activity will be isolated to scattered. Heavy rain, strong winds, and lightning will be main threats with the storms. High pressure is building in and will take control of the forecast to end the weekend and bring us through mid-work week. That means rain/storm chances will drop and the heat will build.
