HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - A DENSE FOG ADVISORY has been posted for Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas until 9 AM on Monday. Visibility will drop to 1/4 mile or less in some areas. Freezing fog could also create some slick roads and overpasses.

As high pressure builds into the region the winds will turn light, and with the snowpack in place, fog is expected to form and could become fairly widespread overnight into Monday morning. A few areas could have visibility fall as low as 1/4 mile. With temperatures tonight dropping through the teens freezing fog could produce some slick spots on sidewalks along with less traveled roads and overpasses.

The fog will linger into the Monday morning commute but should lift by mid morning, however cloud cover could be stubborn and may be slow to break up. Highs on Monday should climb into the low to mid 30s.

Temperatures this week will generally stay below normal with the exception of Friday where highs could climb from the mid 30s to near 40. With a northwest flow of winds above us, a series of subtle disturbances could bring slight chances for precipitation, though timing and location are tough to pinpoint, but nothing significant is expected. Next weekend cold Canadian high pressure will bring some polar air back into the state with highs next Sunday projected into the teens.

Next 7 days.
