...LOCALLY DENSE FOG WILL IMPACT NEAR SHORE GEORGIA WATERS...

Latest satellite imagery and web cams indicate widespread low
clouds and fog had developed along south coastal Georgia prior
to sunrise this morning. Fog was reported along the immediate
coast to the south of Savannah, mainly south of Ossabaw island.
Dense Fog may reduce visibilities to less than 1/2 NM and hamper
navigation through the morning hours to the south of the Savannah
River Entrance. If the fog continues to expand, a dense fog
advisory will be issued.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Mariners are urged to navigate with extreme care. If you must
navigate in these conditions, proceed with caution. Use proper
fog signals, including fog horns. Make sure all navigational
running lights are on.

Please relay any reports of sea fog to the Charleston or Tybee
Island Coast Guard stations and ask them to immediately forward
your report to the National Weather Service in Charleston.
