It is Monday, Sept. 19, 2016.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

Your morning commute could be slowed down this morning by fog. Laura Wibbenmeyer is tracking widespread dense fog. Some portions of the Heartland are under a dense fog advisory until 9 a.m. Otherwise, it will be a mild start to the day and mostly sunny by the time the fog moves out. Highs for the day will likely climb into the upper 80s. FIRST ALERT: Get used to the warmer weather. Summer-like temperatures return even though fall officially arrives on Thursday.
