...Patchy Dense Fog This Morning...

Fog has developed over the past several hours and at a few
locations the visibility has dropped below one quarter mile. The
thickest fog remains in southwest and east central Iowa. Anyone
traveling in these regions this morning...especially...should be
on the lookout for changing conditions and areas of fog along with
pockets of dense fog. The fog will last for most of the morning
and into the afternoon over the eastern counties between US 30 to
US 20...with some improvement expected across southwest Iowa
later this morning. Use caution while driving across these areas

If you encounter dense fog...slow down and use low beam headlights
or fog lights to assist your visibility. Be cautious near
intersections and railroad crossings and allow extra stopping
distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.
