Satellite and webcam observations show sea fog is slowly
thickening across the coastal waters of Southeast South Carolina
and Southeast Georgia late this afternoon. Conditions will remain
favorable for the sea fog to become more widespread this evening
and overnight with visibilities dropping to near zero at times.
These conditions will hamper safe navigation across the coastal
waters and adjacent waterways, including the Charleston and
Savannah Harbors as well as the Intracoastal Waterway. A Dense Fog
Advisory will likely be issued for portions of the coastal waters
over the next few hours.


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.
