Dense fog early, then cloudy and drizzle for Wichita

Visibility could be down to near zero at times this morning thanks to dense fog that has settled over southern Kansas, including the Wichita metropolitan area.

The National Weather Service has issued a dense fog advisory until 10 a.m. for 11 counties in southern Kansas, including Sedgwick, Harvey, Butler, Reno, Harper, Kingman and Sumner counties.

The fog will be at its worst along the Kansas Turnpike, which is bad news for drivers. Freezing fog will not be a threat because the temperature is in the upper 30s.

Once the fog lifts, forecasters say, the day will be cloudy with spats of drizzle. Highs should reach the mid-40s.

Clouds should persist overnight, with lows in the upper 20s. Friday should be sunny, with highs in the low 40s.
