Dense fog advisory issued for parts of Metro Area

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The National Weather Service has issued a dense fog advisory for much of the Metro Area and Southeastern Louisiana until 9 a.m. The fog should burn off by mid-morning, but not before many drivers' commute is over.

The following parishes affected are: Pointe Coupee, West Feliciana, East Feliciana, St. Helena, Washington, St. Tammany, Iberville, West Baton Rouge, East Baton Rouge, Ascension, Livingston, Assumption, St. James, St. John the Baptist, Upper Lafourche, St. Charles, Upper Jefferson, Orleans, Upper Plaquemines, Upper St. Bernard, Upper Terrebonne and Tangipahoa.

Heavy rains yesterday created a nightmare for many with numerous reports of flooding. Luckily today will be drier.

There is currently no upper disturbance moving our way to trigger the abundant rainfall setup we saw yesterday. There are still some showers and storms in the forecast for this afternoon, but not nearly the coverage or intensity as Tuesday's event.

However, Thursday and Friday and perhaps into Saturday more upper disturbances will increase rain coverage again. The pattern finally breaks by Sunday followed by a cold front bringing drier air in for Monday.
