Fog Potential and Other Remarks...Patchy light fog will burn
off by 9 am this morning.
Superfog can reduce visibility to a few feet. For superfog
to be possible there must be a simultaneous combination of
dense fog and a dense smoke source from a fire. If either
of these conditions are not met...then superfog will not occur.
