...AREAS OF SEA FOG PERSIST IN CHARLESTON HARBOR...

Areas of sea fog will persist in the Charleston Harbor through 8
AM. The nature of the fog is such that visibilities will vary
greatly throughout Harbor, especially closer to the Harbor
Entrance and Fort Sumter. The fog will be locally dense at times
with visibilities 1 NM or less. There is still a possibility that
the fog could become more widespread closer to sunrise and a
Marine Dense Fog Advisory could still be needed.

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 Coast Guard
Station and ask them to immediately forward your report to the
National Weather Service in Charleston.

...PATCHY DENSE SEA FOG CONTINUES OVER THE NEARSHORE WATERS...

Satellite, webcams and surface observations show patchy dense
sea fog continues across the nearshore waters of Southeast
Georgia and Southeast South Carolina early this morning. The risk

dropping below 1 NM at times, especially within 5 NM of the
coast. There is a possibility that more widespread sea fog could
develop and a Marine Dense Fog Advisory could be needed for some
areas.

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.
