HOUSTON -- The humid weather pattern sticks around Tuesday as dense sea fog moves into the coastal counties, especially in the morning hours, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.

The National Weather Service has issued a Dense Fog Advisory until 9 a.m. for Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Colorado, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Jackson, Liberty, Matagorda, Waller, and Wharton Counties. Light winds and low level moisture have reduced visibility – mainly south of Interstate 10.

Cold air and an area of low pressure are going to remain to our north, which means temperatures will remain mild.

“We have low clouds in place with a south-southwest wind, so it is adding that muggy feel to the air,” said Johnson. “You’re not going to get a break today. It’s going to feel similar to yesterday.”

We’ll top out in the mid-70s Tuesday afternoon with a very slight chance for rain.

Wednesday and Thursday will be the same but just a few degrees warmer.

On Friday the daytime temps drop back into the low-70s, leaving us with a slightly cooler and cloudier weekend ahead.

There’s a 20- and 30-percent chance for rain on Saturday and Sunday.
