URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
353 AM CDT Thu Mar 23 2017

...DENSE FOG IN SOME LOCATIONS TO CONTINUE INTO THE MORNING...

.The combination of very moist air at the surface, along with a
clear sky and light winds, has allowed areas of fog to develop,
with the fog dense in some locations across Southeast Texas and
Southwest, West Central, and South Central Louisiana. Rapid
visibility changes over short distances are possible, which will
result in hazardous driving conditions. The fog will dissipate by
mid morning.
