Areas of fog early; warm weather continues

Fog is dense in spots this morning. Dense Fog Advisory through 10 AM for the Tri-Cities. Be alert for changing visibility and dense pockets.

Clouds have been tough to break for much of the weekend, and that continues to be the case early today. With enough moisture around, we can't rule out a passing shower or two. For most, it'll just be mostly cloudy and mild.

Any fog shouldn't last terribly long as winds begin to shift out of the south and southeast on Monday. This means another warm day, with some breaks of sunshine! Expect afternoon temperatures to be in the low to mid 60s for most of southwest Virginia and northeast Tennessee. The only exceptions will be near and east of the Blue Ridge (highs in the 50s there).

Heading through much of the coming week, we'll see some periods of rain, and it will stay mild!

Southerly winds become a little breezier as we head into Tuesday (especially higher elevations). A storm system passing through will result in scattered showers during the day Tuesday. A downpour or rumble of thunder is possible.

A cold front will slide through Tuesday night and showers will become more widespread into early Wednesday morning. We can't rule out a few embedded thunderstorms either during that time.

The best chance of rain Wednesday will be during the first half of the day, with cooler air in the forecast for the afternoon. Highs look to be anywhere between 50 and 55 (still above average). But with the breeze wind chills will be in the 40s.

We'll be between weather systems from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday (dry). Temperatures, as a result, warm up a few degrees on Thursday towards 60.

By Friday, another storm system lifts up out of the Gulf States - bringing more showers and a chance of thunderstorms. Still, temperatures will be very warm for this time of year. This system passes by, putting us in between systems again on Saturday with temps in the 60s. Sunday, a potentially stronger storm system rises up from the Gulf States - providing us with another round of rain and possible storms to wrap up the weekend.

Wintry weather doesn't seem to be a threat through the next week, but if it's wintry temps you're looking for - you'll more than likely have to wait until the end of January. Colder air looks to return toward the end of the month!
