Outlook

Weak high pressure will shift east and off the Atlantic coast today. Another front approaches from the west tonight, crossing the area on Monday. So expect more rain mainly tonight through early Monday. A broad area of cold and dry high pressure will then build in and persist through most of the week.

Weather Hazards

...DENSE FOG HAS DEVELOPED ACROSS THE MOUNTAIN VALLEYS...

High pressure has settled over the western Carolinas and northeast Georgia, with light wind and clearing sky. Moisture left over from earlier rain has contributed to the development of fog in the North Carolina mountain valleys, some of which has become dense. People driving across the mountains and through the valleys should be on the lookout for sharply reduced visibility in locations near rivers and streams.
