509 AM EST Wed Jan 24 2018

.NOW...
Through 700 AM, fog and reduced visibilities are reported at the
Marathon and Key West airports. Satellite imagery reveals extensive
cloud cover across the Florida Keys and coastal waters adjacent to
the island chain. Unfortunately, the fog and mist reported at the
airports lies underneath this cloud cover, so it is difficult to
determine how widespread the fog and mist are. Nevertheless, a Dense
Fog Advisory is in effect for the southeastern Gulf, and Bay and
Gulf Side. Plan for visibilities below 1 NM across the coastal waters
adjacent to the Lower and Middle Keys. Visibilities will improve
around sunrise.
