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

FOG WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE AREA LATE THIS AFTERNOON...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 AFTER DARK.

FOG WAS WIDESPREAD ACROSS WISCONSIN AS OF MID-AFTERNOON SATURDAY.
THE ONLY LOCATION WHERE FOG WAS NOT OCCURRING WAS A SMALL AREA IN
FAR NORTHEAST WISCONSIN...FROM WAUSAUKEE TO IRON MOUNTAIN...WHERE
SKIES HAD BEEN CLEAR MUCH OF THE DAY. ACROSS THE REST OF THE
AREA...THE VISIBILITY WAS GENERALLY BETWEEN 1/2 MILE AND 3 MILES.
VISIBILITIES IN THIS RANGE GENERALLY ALLOW FOR SAFE TRAVEL AT THE
POSTED SPEED LIMIT.

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.

THE SNOW COVER IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO MELT OVERNIGHT. AS A
RESULT...VISIBILITIES ARE LIKELY TO IMPROVE ACROSS MUCH OF CENTRAL
AND EAST-CENTRAL WISCONSIN BY LATE SUNDAY MORNING. CONDITIONS MAY
BE SLOWER TO IMPROVE ACROSS THE NORTH...WHERE A DEEPER SNOW COVER
IS IN PLACE.
