Mild temperatures, drizzle, patches of fog forecast Thursday

Highs in the mid-60s with drizzly, cloudy skies are forecast Thursday in the Baltimore area.

Overnight lows were forecast in the 40s to around 50 degrees, with light rain possible into the early morning. The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather alert warning of patchy dense fog, with visibility limited to a quarter of a mile, in the morning as well.

Temperatures are expected to reach the 60s by midday, possibly climbing to the upper 60s downtown by late afternoon.

There is a chance of rain in the late evening hours, perhaps holding off until after the lighting of the Washington Monument in Mount Vernon.

Overnight lows Thursday into Friday are expected to stay in the 50s.

Rain is forecast to continue throughout Friday, with as much as an inch falling. Beyond the front bringing the rain, cold temperatures are forecast to return, with weekend highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

A difficult forecast is evolving for Saturday night through Sunday, with chances for freezing rain or a wintry mix, likely turning to rain by Sunday night's Ravens/Vikings game at M&T Bank Stadium.
