Dense fog possible this morning, but sunny day ahead

People walk along Folly Beach Saturday morning.

Saturday will start with soupy skies in the Charleston area, but sunshine is expected to triumph.

According to the National Weather Service, fog will slowly expand across parts of the Lowcountry this morning.

While the fog could make for beautiful photos, it could also make for dangerous driving.

The weather service warns the fog could become dense at times, with visibilities dropping to a quarter-mile or less.

The risk for this kind of dense fog will be the greatest near low-lying areas like rivers, swamps, marshes and large ditches.

Drivers are urged to use caution.

The fog should lift before 9 a.m., and give way to an otherwise sunny Saturday with a high near 84.

By tonight, temperatures are expected to drop to a low around 69.

Sunday will be a different story.

That’s when a chance of rain and thunderstorms creep into the forecast, mainly after 2 p.m.

Chance of precipitation is 30 percent.

Beyond the chance of rain, Sunday is expected to be mostly cloudy with a high near 82.

By Sunday night, conditions will shift to mostly cloudy skies with a low near 70.

However, showers and thunderstorms appear yet again in the forecast.

Chance of precipitation is 30 percent.
