Early fog gives way to patchy rain Friday

Posted January 8

Friday started out damp and foggy but will give way to patchy rain in the afternoon.

Foggy, damp conditions settled in eastern North Carolina on Friday morning, obscuring visibility for the early morning commute.

"It looks like a lot of drizzle and mist, especially around the Triangle area," said WRAL Meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner. Visibility could change quickly, though, as the sun rises, Gardner said.

Temperatures across the region hovered around the low 40s early in the morning with a high in the upper 40s in the afternoon.

A warm front pushing up across the region will bring patchy rain throughout the afternoon.

The best chance of rain, though, will be Saturday night into Sunday morning as the temperature could climb into the 60s.

Temperatures will drop again next week back into the 40s as another cold front moves through.
