Dense fog covers La., Miss. coast

NEW ORLEANS — Dense fog covers much of southeast Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf coast.

A fog advisory remains in effect until midmorning Monday.

Warm and moist air over the region is generating the foggy conditions.

The Weather Service also anticipates the return of heavy rain Monday through Tuesday, including thunderstorms capable of producing strong wind gusts and occasional lightning.

General rainfall amounts between 1 and 3 inches are expected in the area, with locally higher amounts of 4 to 6 inches possible through Tuesday afternoon.

The rain threat is expected to end with the passage of a strong cold front late Tuesday afternoon.
