COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A Dense Fog Advisory is once again in effect until 11 AM EST this morning. With visibility down to zero miles in many spots, you will want to factor in some extra time for the morning commute. Once the fog clears around lunchtime, we’ll still have cloudy skies to deal with and temperatures near 70 later this afternoon. The weather pattern still looks very unsettled over the next week or so and our next shot of rain and storms arrives later this afternoon into the evening hours. Though we don’t expect much in the way of severe weather concerns, don’t be surprised for a few storms to have gusty winds and frequent lightning. The overnight storms will transition to scattered showers at times for Friday.
The cold front responsible for this next batch of rain will set us up for 60s tomorrow and 50s again through Valentine’s Day. For President’s Day Weekend, Saturday features the best rain coverage with wet weather around most of the day, but still expect some showers around for Valentine’s Day and Monday, too. With the weather pattern staying active next week, we’ll have to monitor for any severe weather concerns. Too far out to say with any certainty (and that goes for an Arctic blasts for NEXT weekend as well), but for now, we have two more rounds of thunderstorms on tap for Tuesday and Thursday. We’ll keep you posted in the coming days as we fine-tune the forecast because there is no denying this a complex weather pattern to nail down!
