Temperatures are below freezing over most of central, northern,
and eastern Nevada with extremely high humidity. This is causing
widespread ice fog and slippery roads.

Visibility is reported to be dropping suddenly to less then a
quarter mile in spots, especially in low spots and near stream

One report came in of ice forming on windshields despite
defrosting full blast.

This will continue most of the day and into evening over much of
the state. Please slow down. Please remember that it`s not you who
are dangerous....it`s the other driver. Keep a watch out.

More statements will be issued as warranted.
