Motorists in North Texans found the drive a bit tricky Tuesday morning, as dense fog covered the area in some locations.

A dense fog advisory was issued Tuesday before drivers hit the road and was later extended as the fog lingered at Tarrant County airports. Forecasters cancelled it before the noon hour.

Visibility in some areas Tuesday morning was less than a one-fourth of mile in some parts of Tarrant County.

By 10 a.m. Tuesday, visibility was about a mile in the Fort Worth area, but it was a half-mile or less at the Spinks and Alliance airports.

Once the fog leaves, temperatures will be warm Tuesday and for most of the week. The high Tuesday is expected to be in the lower 70s.

"We're looking at having temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above normal for this time of the year," said meteorologist Eric Martello in Fort Worth.

Patchy fog is predicted for Wednesday morning, but forecasters say there probably will not be a need for a dense fog advisory.

Morning temperatures will be in the 50s.

Forecasters are calling for slight chances of rain Wednesday and Thursday, but the best chance of rain could be this weekend.

A cold front arrives Saturday, bringing a 30 percent chance of rain Saturday night and a 40 percent chance Sunday.

Cooler temperatures are expected behind the front.
