Thursday morning started with areas of dense fog, especially in the valley locations.
The fog will burn off as we progress through the morning with brighter and milder conditions working into the state by the afternoon.
This afternoon will feature partly sunny skies with high temperatures climbing into the middle- to upper-70s. Keep in mind that average high temperatures this time of year are in the middle 60s.
The weather will remain dry for Friday before a cold front brings showers and thunderstorms by Saturday.
Cooler, more seasonable weather works into the state by Sunday and next week.
