A dense fog advisory was in effect until noon for Cook and Lake counties in Illinois, and Lake and Porter counties in Indiana. The advisory continued until 2 p.m. for the skies directly over the lake.

Rain showers are expected later in the day, probably around dinner time and into the evening, CBS 2 Meteorologist Megan Glaros reports.
