First Alert: Tuesday forecast

Because of the clear skies and the falling temperatures, fog is in the forecast for Monday night. Due to the area experiencing temperatures below freezing, that also means freezing fog may develop in some areas.

If you come across any fog between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. Tuesday morning, take it easy on the road. Temperatures will be between 29 and 32 degrees so the fog will be freezing to surfaces, like the road, in some places.

Tuesday afternoon looks sunny and nice. Highs will be in the upper 50s with the wind shifting from the north back to the west.

Wednesday the wind will continue to shift back around to the south ahead of our next system. Highs will be in the low 60s with a south wind at 5 to 10 mph. No threat for rain, but clouds will be increasing through the day and into the evening.

Thursday, the weather theme will be “increase” as the temperature, clouds, rain chances and the wind will all be increasing. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s with a southeast wind at 5 to 15 mph. The chance for rain will be between 50 and 70 percent between 3 p.m. and midnight.

Thursday night and through Friday a few more storms may blitz through the area overnight and into Friday morning before we get "dry slotted" by the area of low pressure. That means the threat for rain will really decrease through the day. Highs will be around 60.

The next front arrives on Sunday and into Monday with little to no precipitation. Highs will hold int he upper 50s to around 60 through the weekend.

Beyond that, it looks like the next chance for precipitation shows up on Wednesday and Thursday of the following week as an area of low pressure glides by to our south across the Gulf of Mexico. Rain chances aren’t looking great right now, at only 20 percent, but it is something worth watching as it would be a very cold rain.

As we look toward Christmas, all signs point to an about-average day. With highs around 60 and a few passing clouds. Though, that forecast is likely to change.
