...Dense Fog to Hamper Travel through the Morning Hours...

Dense fog has formed through many parts of the upper Clinch River
Valley and also into southern West Virginia from Bluefield to
Flat Top. Several locations in this area are reporting
visibilities in the 0 to 1/2 mile range at this hour. With wet
ground, light winds, and mild temperatures, it may be several
hours or even until just after daybreak before conditions improve
across this region. If conditions become worse, a Dense Fog
Advisory may be needed for this area.

If you are traveling through the early morning hours today, be
alert for areas of severely reduced and highly variable
visibilities between ridgetops and valleys. Reduce speed, allow
extra distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, and
use low beam headlights.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or Commercial Radio and
Television for the latest weather information.
