HOUSTON -- A dense fog advisory is in effect until 10 a.m. Monday with some parts of Houston reporting visibility of 1/4 mile or less.

KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson says the densest fog is in Houston and its southern counties. Drivers are advised to use low-beam headlights and leave plenty of distance between cars.

Even after the fog is gone, it’ll stay cloudy Monday with a 30-percent chance for rain and a high temp of 71 degrees.

Tuesday’s weather is similar with an increasing chance for rain as a front approaches.

“A strong cold front will move in Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning,” said Johnson. “We have temps in the 30s expected by Thursday morning.”

The rain chance drops to 20 percent on Wednesday and goes away by Thursday. Partly cloudy skies will allow it to remain cold – with forecast highs in the mid-50s on Wednesday and Thursday.

Friday morning will be cool, but we’ll return to the 70s that afternoon.

Saturday will be partly cloudy with daytime temps in the 60s.
