Fog is likely to blanket the Houston region for a few more days and temperatures will probably climb into the lower 70s.

Soupy, dense fog will likely linger late each morning for the next few days, according to the National Weather Service. Forecasters said a moist air mass and little wind has made conditions ideal for foggy mornings.

"It's become soupy," said Patrick Blood, a weather service meteorologist. "Basically, we're socked in with fog."

On Wednesday, a dense fog advisory is in effect through 9 a.m. Some spots in the metropolitan area could see visibility drop about a quarter of a mile, Blood said. He said Bush Intercontinental and Hobby airports had heavy fog early in the morning, but no flight delays had been reported.

Once the fog clears later in the morning, skies should be sunny and the high will probably be about 72 degrees. The overnight low will be near 57.

More fog may be possible Thursday morning, Blood said. The high will be near 76 degrees. After the fog dissipates, skies will likely be partly sunny. A 20 percent chance of showers is possible. The overnight low will be about 57.

Rain chances continue Friday as a mild cold front becomes stationary in the region. The high will be about 74 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. A 20 percent chance of showers is possible. Rainfall is likely to be light and widely scattered, Blood said. The low will be near 53.

A slim chance of light, scattered showers and thunderstorms is possible on the weekend. The highs Saturday and Sunday will probably be in the lower 70s. The highs will be in the lower to upper 50s. A 20 percent chance of rain is possible each day.
