...Areas of Dense Fog likely this afternoon across parts of
Southeast Missouri...

For those traveling along and south of Highway 60 from the
Mississippi River, westward through Southeast Missouri, be
watchful for areas of dense fog developing with time.

The combination of very light or calm winds and a completely
saturated atmosphere left behind from the rain earlier this
morning has produced ideal conditions for the development of fog.

Spotter and surface observations from Dexter to near West Plains
Missouri indicate visibilities ranging from one quarter to one
half mile. As you move southward toward the Arkansas border,
visibilities may drop to near zero.

If you are planning travel this afternoon or evening across
extreme Southeast Missouri, then be prepared to allow a little
extra time to reach your destination.

Use low beam headlights and fog lights, if available, while you
travel. Be sure to signal, if you are changing lanes or turning
onto or off a road.

These foggy conditions will likely persist through most of the
afternoon.
