...DENSE FOG ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 3 PM CST THIS AFTERNOON...

Synopsis: A cold front will likely stall near coastal areas of SE LA and MS later this afternoon, before drifting back north as a warm front later tonight through tomorrow. South of this front, dense fog will continue with visibilities at or lower than 1/4 mile at times. While rain chances will be low today and tonight, a brief passing shower/drizzle cannot be ruled out. The next cold front is expected to swing through the area late Sunday/Monday with some light showers possible, with winds switching from the S/SSW to NW and becoming gusty which will likely press out any remaining fog across marine areas. This active pattern will continue through middle/late next week with increasing rain/thunderstorm chances right around the corner.
