A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 9 am for the entire area. Many visibilities will be less than a half a mile during the hours around sunrise. If traveling by car, use extra caution. Allow more time to drive and turn on your low beam headlights. When you turn on your headlights, instead of just using daytime runners. This turns on your taillights.
After the fog lifts this morning, we’re left with a warm, sunny day. Highs will be in the upper 70’s or near 80 degrees. This is about fifteen degrees above average for this time of year and more reminiscent of where we should be for late April or the start of May. Some places may even break records as temperatures top out near 80 degrees. Mobile’s record to beat is 80 degrees from 2011 while Pensacola’s record is 77 from 2011. For this evening’s parade, expect mild, quiet weather, perfect for Mardi Gras.
We stay dry and mild through tomorrow. More rain arrives for the midweek. We’ll dry out briefly on Thursday before more rain on Friday. After a few morning showers next Saturday, we could return to a dry pattern for next weekend.
