* Dense fog locations include...Valleys in the Umpqua Basin
  including Scottsburg and Elkton as well as from Tri-City to
  north of Drain along Interstate 5.

* Impacts...Poor visibility, less than one quarter of a mile at
  times, will make travel difficult. This morning, the dense fog
  may become freezing fog and create slippery roads with
  additional travel difficulties.

* Air stagnation locations include: All inland valleys.

* Impacts: Limited ventilation will result in degraded air
  quality, which may pose a risk to those working outside and to

* View the hazard area in detail at
  https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mfr/HAZARD

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Dense Fog Advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile.

* If driving, slow down and leave plenty of distance ahead of
  you.

* Use low beams. High beams reflect back thick fog, making
  visibility worse for you and other drivers.

An air stagnation advisory indicates that due to limited movement
of an air mass across the advisory area, pollution will increase.
