The fog streak in North Texas continued Wednesday.

For the second consecutive morning, forecasters issued a dense fog advisory for much of North Texas, including Tarrant, Denton, Johnson and Parker counties.

Forecasters added Tarrant, Cooke and Denton to the advisory just before 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. The advisory expired at 10 a.m.

The advisory also included Cooke, Montague, Young, Jack, Wise, Stephens, Palo Pinto, Eastland, Erath, Hood, Somervell and Comanche counties.

Visibility was less than a quarter mile in some of those areas.

The high should reach the upper 60s Wednesday. The temperature was at 62 just before 11 a.m.

There's a 20 percent chance of rain for Wednesday, but forecasters say residents living south of the Fort Worth-Dallas area have the best chance to feel the raindrops. Forecasters say the best chance of rain for Fort Worth is the weekend.

"There's a strong system that will give us the best chance of rain late Saturday and early Sunday," said meteorologist Nick Hampshire at the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth. "Those should be out of the area by Sunday afternoon."

There's a 50 percent chance of rain late Saturday, according to the NWS in Fort Worth.

North Texans will have cooler temperatures after the showers and thunderstorms leave the area on Sunday.
