FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Patchy fog during morning commute, cold front continues to inch towards Tennessee Valley

(WAFF) -

The forecast has changed quite a bit in the last 24 hours, and more changes may be coming. The short-term issue this morning will be patchy dense fog, which will will be thickest near rivers/lakes and in our valleys. It’s not widespread enough to be a problem for everyone, but if you still may want to give yourself a few extra minutes in case you need to slow down. 

We’re looking at mostly cloudy skies through the day as scattered showers develop ahead of a cold front. Rain should be most widespread this afternoon, but plenty of you will stay dry as showers remain hit-or-miss. Any rain tapers off behind the front this evening and the clouds hang around through the night, and lows should dip to near 60 for Thursday morning. 

Thursday will be a cooler day with mostly cloudy skies, isolated sprinkles, and highs near 70. 

The changes to the forecast revolve around Friday and the weekend. Moisture from Tropical Storm/Hurricane Joaquin will interact with the front, sending more cloud cover into the Valley from the east. Highs Friday and Saturday should stay in the 60s, although areas west of I-65 may make it into the 70s.

Light rain remains possible through Sunday, with highs rebounding into the 70s and a fair amount of cloud cover will likely hanging around. 

Skies should begin clearing as we begin the next work week. Look for warmer conditions as that happens and highs reaching the mid-to-upper 70s by the middle of the week. Mostly sunny skies and dry weather can be expected.
