...PATCHY SEA FOG CONTINUES ALONG PORTIONS OF THE GEORGIA AND FAR
SOUTHERN SOUTH CAROLINA COAST...

Webcams and observations indicate that patchy sea fog was near
the Savannah River Entrance, extending north into coastal
Beaufort County and likely occurring to the south of Tybee Island
along the Georgia coast.

Visibility in the fog will be 1 nm or less at times. Locally
dense fog is possible and if the coverage of the fog becomes
widespread enough, a Dense Fog Advisory would be required.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Mariners are urged to navigate with extreme care. If you must
navigate in these conditions, proceed with caution. Use proper
fog signals, including fog horns. Make sure all navigational
running lights are on.

Please relay any reports of sea fog to the Charleston or Tybee
Island Coast Guard stations and ask them to immediately forward
your report to the National Weather Service in Charleston.
