A DENSE FOG ADVISORY is in effect for all of north Texas from 2am to 10am. With the wet ground, clearing skies, high humidity and light winds visibility will fall below 1/4 mile in many areas, especially around water bodies and standing water:
Clouds stuck around just about all day, highs stayed in the 60′s. Skies are clearing some this evening. With the wet soils and high humidity we’ll likely have some fog around tomorrow morning as the winds diminish.
