...DENSE FOG LIKELY TO HAMPER TRAVEL AT TIMES THROUGH SUNDAY
MORNING...

FOG WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE AREA TODAY...BUT VISIBILITIES SHOULD
REMAIN SUFFICIENT TO HAVE A LIMITED IMPACT ON TRAVEL. VISIBILITIES
ARE LIKELY TO DECREASE TONIGHT...RESULTING IN MUCH MORE HAZARDOUS
TRAVEL CONDITIONS.

FOG WAS WIDESPREAD ACROSS WISCONSIN AS OF LATE SATURDAY MORNING.
THE ONLY LOCATION WHERE FOG WAS NOT OCCURRING WAS A SMALL AREA IN
FAR NORTHEAST WISCONSIN...FROM WAUSAUKEE TO IRON MOUNTAIN...WHERE
SKIES WERE CLEAR. ACROSS THE REST OF THE AREA...THE FOG WAS QUITE
DENSE IN PLACES...WITH MOST WEATHER OBSERVING SYSTEMS REPORTING
VISIBILITIES BETWEEN 1/4 MILE AND 1 MILE. VISIBILITIES IN THIS
RANGE GENERALLY ALLOW FOR SAFE TRAVEL AT THE POSTED SPEED
LIMIT...THOUGH MOTORISTS MAY NEED TO SLOW DOWN IN AREAS WHERE THE
FOG IS THICKER.

THE OVERALL TREND DURING THE LATE MORNING AND AFTERNOON HOURS WILL
BE FOR THE FOG TO OVERSPREAD THE FAR NORTHEAST CORNER OF THE
STATE...AND PERSIST ACROSS THE REST OF THE AREA. VISIBILITIES
PROBABLY WON/T CHANGE MUCH THROUGH DUSK.

THE CONTINUED ARRIVAL OF INCREASINGLY MOIST AIR OVER THE SNOW-
COVERED GROUND IS LIKELY TO CAUSE VISIBILITIES TO DECREASE AFTER
SUNSET. AS A RESULT...TRAVEL CONDITIONS WILL BECOME MUCH MORE
HAZARDOUS DURING THE EVENING...AS VISIBILITIES DROP TO WELL UNDER
1/4 MILE. VISIBILITIES AS LOW AS A FEW HUNDRED FEET ARE POSSIBLE
AT TIMES. OCCASIONAL DRIZZLE IS ALSO EXPECTED TO DEVELOP.

USE LOW-BEAM HEADLIGHTS WHEN DRIVING IN FOG. ALWAYS DRIVE AT A
SPEED THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO SAFELY STOP YOUR VEHICLE IF YOU
ENCOUNTER AN ANIMAL OR OBJECT ON THE ROAD.

CONDITIONS MAY IMPROVE A BIT SUNDAY MORNING...ESPECIALLY TO THE
SOUTH AND WEST OF WAUSAU WERE THE SNOW COVER WILL BE MELTING OFF.
BUT AT LEAST SOME FOG IS LIKELY TO PERSIST INTO MONDAY...AS THE
WEATHER PATTERN ACROSS THE AREA WILL BE RATHER STAGNANT.
