DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Many North Texans woke up in a fog on Thursday morning. The picture above, taken from a tower-mounted camera in downtown Dallas, shows the heavy fog rolling over our area.
While folks in Tarrant County barely saw haze, the fog thickened from downtown Dallas through much of Dallas County. Many other areas — Collin County, Hunt County, Ellis County and Cooke County — also saw fog with visibilities less than a quarter of a mile.
While some fog was expected, clear skies overnight allowed North Texas temperatures to cool further than forecast. Add light southeast winds to the mix, bringing in slightly more moisture without stirring up the lower atmosphere, and the fog dropped the visibility down to a fifteenth of a mile for Cleburne, Terrell, Greenville, McKinney, Gainesville and Bowie.
This weather story is being overshadowed by the impending cold front that will bring a sharp temperature contrast, between the 50s and the 70s, for Thursday afternoon. Just check out the map below. The focus will be on will be on the unseasonably warm temperatures for most of the North Texas and the considerably cooler conditions along the Red River.
