...Areas of Dense Fog Spreading North Across Central, East Central
and Southeast Illinois...

An area of low cloudiness and dense fog continues to spread slowly
north over central, east central and southeast Illinois late this
evening. As the lower cloud deck shifts north, we have seen a
rapid decrease in visibilities from greater than 10 miles to less
than one half mile as the fog initially rolls in. The fog is
expected to persist through the mid-morning hours of Sunday before
we see visibilities improve across the area.

Motorists are urged to use extreme caution early Sunday morning
if driving across central, east central and southeast Illinois as
the rapid changes in visibilities makes for hazardous driving
conditions. Slow down...use your low beam headlights and leave
plenty of distance ahead of you.
