(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.
