Light winds, high dewpoints, and rain soaked ground will be the perfect formula for dense fog tonight and overnight. We can expect visibility to fall less than 1 mile across much of the area. Some of the worst fog is likely in Jefferson, Shelby, Talladega, and St. Clair Counties.
Visibility will be especially low in the some of the hilly terrain. Expect dense fog along Highway 231 in St. Clair/Shelby Counties. We'll also have fog issues along Highway 280 between Chelsea and Sylacauga. The fog will likely burn off after 8am leaving us with low clouds through the morning hours. We will see some sunshine during the afternoon with only a small chance of rain. Highs will reach the upper 80s.
We'll see mostly sunny skies for much of this week with a good blast of cool air moving in by Thursday morning. Temperatures will fall into the upper 50s for morning lows.
The weekend forecast is looking incredible (especially on Saturday) with sunny skies with highs in the mid 80s.
There's a small chance of rain on Sunday as another cool front approaches the area.
