Visibility across Acadiana early Tuesday morning was near zero in some areas as dense fog stayed through the late morning. A warm and humid airmass is moving northward across the Gulf of Mexico and riding over colder waters. The marine layer moisture is trapped south of a front that has stalled over central Louisiana.
As the moisture pools over south Louisiana, the fog thickens. Dense fog advisories have been extended through midday over most of the region and until noon for the coastal areas. Offshore areas may hold onto the fog most of the day. Similar conditions are forecast for Wednesday and Thursday mornings. By Friday morning a cold front will push through bringing slightly drier and cooler air to Acadiana helping to keep skies more clear over the weekend.
