...Patchy Dense Fog This Morning...

Fog has developed over the past several hours and at a few
locations the visibility has dropped to near or below one quarter
mile. Light winds and cold temperatures this morning have resulted
in the fog. There may also be some frost forming on bridges or
overpasses in areas where the fog is thickest.

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. Be extra
cautious driving over bridges and overpasses if dense fog is
encountered as roads may be slick in those areas.
