Dense fog into Saturday morning; cloudy & cool otherwise

Southeast Minnesota and parts of northeast Iowa are in a DENSE FOG ADVISORY again going into Friday night, effective until 10am Saturday morning. Visibility will again be limited to 1/4 mile or less at times, and with temperatures dipping below freezing tonight, there will be some ice on untreated surfaces.

Temperatures are still running well above normal for this time of year, yet below record territory for now. This mild trend will continue through next week and beyond, and temperatures will climb into the lower 40s for some of us late next week. While it’s going to be warm for late January and early February, there will still be a lot more cloud cover than clear sky. Sunshine will be difficult to come by through the next 10 days, although we should catch a break or two of blue sky from time to time.

There are still no significant storm systems coming our way anytime soon, continuing the snow drought for this season so far.
