Foggy and Cloudy Before a Breakthrough of Sunshine!

Wowza! Mother Nature’s natural fog machine at work this morning…

Visibility has been reduced down to a quarter of a mile and even less at times. Here’s a screen grab from earlier in the show…

Clouds linger but the fog is slowly lifting…VIDEO TVI1

A Dense Fog Advisory remains in effect until 8 am this morning (7:41 am as I type here). If you live in a county shaded under the GREY color, allow plenty of time to get to your destination and plenty of room between you and the car ahead of you.

After a fair share of showers and even severe thunderstorms over the past couple of days, our 4WARN Live Doppler Radar shapes up quite nicely! Lingering moisture from a very slow-moving frontal boundary keeps a few showers in the picture for our southeastern counties. Once these taper off towards the east, clouds will decrease and beauty takes over!

First we must get through mainly cloudy skies, which keeps temperatures steady in the lower 70s. WSMV DMA TEMPS ZOOM1_EffectSquiggle Autoplot

Once the clouds break up, plenty of sunshine will do its thing to heat things up QUICKLY! We are talking lower 90s…

Lingering moisture associated with a departing system is the reason for the clouds, few showers and fog this morning. Here’s a view from space…DD SATRAD3D Zooms

Bright sunshine and dry weather is welcomed by many! Enjoy!

A secondary front over the central plains will push south and east towards the Mid State, bringing showers and thunderstorms as soon as late tonight into early Saturday morning. Here’s the timing…

The Storm Prediction Center has our northern counties under a ‘Marginal Risk’ for any of these storms to reach severe criteria. Damaging winds will be the greatest threat with some of these stronger storms…DAPHNE SEVERE RISK REGION BOX

Showers and a few spotty storms are possible on Saturday, mainly during the morning. Highs pressure builds in for the second half of the day and that sunshine takes over the remainder of the weekend, even into Monday! Nice…
