HOUSTON – Houston’s holiday weekend started off on a damp note Friday morning.
Much of the metro area woke up to mist, creating some slick roads for the morning commute.
The National Weather Service issued a dense fog advisory until 9 a.m. for most of the southeast Texas coast.
Skies are expected to remain cloudy for the remainder of the day with off-and-on showers, according to KPRC 2 meteorologist Britta Merwin. It will be warm, however. Temperatures will climb into the mid-70s by Friday afternoon.
For Christmas Eve, above average temperatures are still expected with mostly cloudy skies and a slim chance of showers. Saturday will start out in the mid-60s, but a high in the upper 70s is expected.
Similar weather is expected Christmas Day.
Colder weather is forecast for the end of 2016.
