Skies are nearly clear over the state early this Wednesday
morning...with the exception of patchy dense fog developing over
the south once again. Temperatures are quite chilly over the north
where some mid to upper 30s are occurring north of Highway 18.
Over the remainder of the region temperatures range from the lower
to mid 40s to around 50. Winds are light northeast or calm.
Early morning fog will again impact the south half of the state. A
weak boundary is separating higher moisture over the south from
slightly drier air across the north. The fog will burn off by mid
morning and partly cloudy conditions are expected for the afternoon
hours. An isolated shower may occur west of Interstate 35 this
afternoon. Highs today will once again be in the 60s to near 70. A
moderation in temperature will occur into the weekend with highs
in the 75 to 80 degree range. Though little rainfall is expected
through Sunday...a stronger weather system will arrive Sunday
night and Monday. This will bring showers and thunderstorms along
with more active weather. Chances for stronger thunderstorms will
persist into Wednesday.
