FIRST ALERT: Fog is forming rapidly, will create travel difficulties

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A FIRST ALERT for areas of dense fog and limited visibility overnight.  A dense fog advisory has been issued for Jefferson, Blount, Shelby, St. Clair, Etowah, Cherokee, Calhoun, Talladega, Clay, Cleburne and Randolph counties until 8 a.m. Allow extra drive time in the morning to account for this and potential accidents.

A cold front moving southward brings a chance for rain to the state from north to south. The greatest chance for rain and a few storms is during the morning hours to the north of I-20 and during the afternoon hours to the south. Cooler air arrives by Wednesday and temperatures will be running about 20 degrees colder. You'll need a jacket and an umbrella on Wednesday. Temperatures will be in the 50s during the day and rain moves back in especially in the afternoon and evening hours. The rain chance lingers into early Thursday otherwise drier weather takes over and temperatures climb into the lower 60s.

Rain is gone for Friday and Veterans Day. Temperatures during the parade will be in the middle 60s and in the upper 50s for fireworks by the evening hours. A few showers associated with our next front looks to arrive on Sunday. Overall, the weekend looks pretty good as a whole.

Tropical Storm Rina forms in the middle of the Atlantic but poses no threat to the United States.
