The dense fog in North Texas is gone and residents will have partly cloudy skies for the rest of the day.

The National Weather Service office in Fort Worth had issued a dense fog advisory that went into effect at 2 a.m. Monday, but it expired at 10 a.m. for most of North Texas.

Visibility had dropped to one quarter mile or less in many areas of North Texas, according to forecasters.

Rain chances return on Tuesday. Forecasters are calling for a 20 percent chance with low temperatures in the mid-60s and highs in the upper 70s. Rain chances increases to 40 percent Tuesday night.

A cold front arrives Wednesday and with it the best chance of rain for Tarrant County. Showers and thunderstorms could hit the area Wednesday morning, but more likely, residents will see rainfall Wednesday afternoon and evening. The chance of rain is 70 percent during the day and 60 percent that night.

Severe weather is possible with those storms Wednesday. A few could contain large hail, damaging downburst winds and very heavy rains that could lead to flash flooding in some areas, the National Weather Service says.

The cold front, however, won’t be bringing terribly chilly weather. The low Wednesday will be about 69, the high in the upper 70s.

Some rain could linger on Halloween morning, but partly sunny skies should be around Thursday afternoon and evening for ghosts and goblins.

“For trick-or-treaters, it should be dry,” said meteorologist Jason Dunn of the National Weather Service office. “It might be breezy Halloween evening with northwest winds, but there should not be any rain.”

Temperatures for the vampires and witches Thursday evening should be in the upper 60s.

Forecasters say we’ll be looking at partly cloudy skies Friday with highs remaining in the 70s.
