Dense fog in the morning, then showers for Wichita area

The National Weather Service has issued a dense fog advisory for more than a dozen counties in southern and central Kansas this morning. Fog has reduced visibility to less than a half-mile in portions of 13 counties, including Sedgwick, Sumner, Kingman, Harvey and Reno counties.

The advisory is in effect until 10 a.m. today. Other counties included are Russell, Lincoln, Barton, Ellsworth, Saline, Rice, McPherson and Harper.

Cloudy skies should persist throughout the day, forecasters say, and chances for rain will increase as the day unfolds. Highs should reach the low 60s, with light southerly winds.

Rain is likely overnight before skies clear on Tuesday, forecasters say. Highs will only reach the upper 40s Tuesday and the low 50s on Wednesday. Sunny skies are expected through at least Saturday.
