FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Pockets of patchy, dense fog lifting; cold front heading towards the Valley

(WAFF) -

Many of you will be waking up to patchy fog that developed overnight. The most widespread fog has been over sections of Jackson, Marshall, and DeKalb Counties as well as across southern Tennessee. You may want to give yourself a little more time this morning in case you have to slow down. 

The fog should lift by 9 a.m. and skies will be mostly sunny. Temperatures will quickly warm from the upper 40s into the mid-70s by lunchtime with highs pushing into the lower 80s today. Clouds will increase for the late afternoon as a cold front approaches the Valley.

The chance for rain starts going up this evening, but the most widespread rain should hold off until after 8 p.m. 

Scattered showers can be expected from the late evening into the early morning hours of Tuesday. You may hear a few rumbles of thunder, but the threat for stronger storms is very low. A lingering shower is possible through around 8am, but skies will be clearing after that. Look for mostly sunny skies by Tuesday afternoon with highs into the mid-70s. 

Behind the front, fall-like conditions will continue for the rest of the work week. Skies will be sunny for Wednesday and Thursday with highs each afternoon should make it into the mid-to-upper 70s. You may need a light jacket during the morning hours as lows drop into the mid-40s this week. 

A secondary push of cooler air arrives late in the week. This cold front looks dry, but it will knock temperatures down slightly for the upcoming weekend.
