...Patchy Dense Fog Into the Early Afternoon...

Fog continues to expand southeast across the area and at a few
locations the visibility has dropped below one quarter mile. The
thickest fog remains in southeast and central Iowa. Anyone traveling
in these regions this morning into the early afternoon 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 and southeast counties
...with some improvement expected later regionwide after the noon
hour. Use caution while driving across these areas today.

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.
