HOUSTON –- A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 9 a.m. Monday, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.

Areas of dense fog with visibilities at 1/4 mile or less have been reported across Southeast Texas, making for hazardous driving conditions. Drivers are advised to slow down, use only low beam headlights, and leave plenty of distance between vehicles.

The fog should quickly burn off after sunrise, but the clouds will stick around along with a chance for rain.

“We’re starting off in the 50s this morning ahead of a cold front,” said Johnson. “Later this morning the front will have pushed through, which will also help reduce the fog. We have a better chance for steady rainfall Tuesday, however.”

This afternoon we’ll only top out around 45 degrees with a 50-percent chance for rain.

Tuesday will be even colder, in the 30s, with a 70-percent chance for rain.

On Wednesday the rain starts to clear out, but the cold temps stick around until Thursday.

Later this week through the weekend the sun returns along with daytime temps in the 60s and 70s.
