...Gradual improvement in visibility by late this morning...

Satellite imagery and regional webcams continue to show an extensive
area of fog across the western Appalachians, North Carolina High
Country to the Blue Ridge. In some locations, fog has been
locally dense with visibilities less than one quarter mile. Expect
both a gradual decrease in coverage and increase in surface
visibility through the late morning hours.

Travelers on smaller roads and larger interstates including I-81,
I-77 from Fancy Gap VA north into West Virginia and I-64, should
continue to be prepared to experience sudden changes in
visibility. Use low- beam headlights and drive at reduced speeds
in or near foggy areas. Fog should burn off completely by 11 AM.
