North Texans Wake Up To Very Dense Fog
FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - Sunday’s record rainfall provided plenty of moisture, plus a stalled front provided very little air movement. The result is dense fog with visibilities down — DFW International Airport and Dallas Love Field have already reported visibilities at 0.0 miles. The visibility will be down to less the a quarter mile in many locations this morning, especially across the Mid-Cities area that received the most rain on Easter Sunday.
A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 11:00 a.m. and the fog will likely take much of that time to really improve.
Tips For Driving In Thick Fog:
Once we’ve cleared from the fog, we will be greeted with a mostly sunny sky for Monday afternoon with temperatures near 80 degrees. Because a frontal boundary is stalled over North Texas, another round of storms and showers is expected to develop during the overnight hours, and move in toward the Metroplex for Tuesday morning’s commute.
Tuesday will start off wet and likely go dry in the afternoon, but we can’t rule out spot showers or a storm in the afternoon-to-evening hours.
Overall, this week sees a rain opportunity each day, as the front remains locked over North Texas and upper level energy rides on top. It will be the timing of these upper level waves that will give us a more accurate call on when rain and storms will occur this week. But, for now, we are keeping a general 20 percent rain and storm chance in the forecast every day.
Monday: Morning fog. Mostly sunny skies. High 80. Winds south 5-10 mph.
Monday Night: A 50 percent chance for storms after midnight through Tuesday morning’s commute. Low 62. Winds southeast 5-10 mph.
Tuesday: Morning rain and mostly cloudy afternoon. A spot 20 percent storm is possible, but large dry hours. High 78. Winds southeast 5-10 mph.
Wednesday through Sunday: Variable clouds and sunshine with a 20 percent chance for showers and storms. Highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. Winds becoming gusty Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
