Dense Fog Advisory

URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
901 PM CST Tue Feb 19 2019

...Areas of dense fog affecting parts of the coastal counties and
parishes...

.Warm and moist air being transported atop relatively cooler
shelf waters has resulted in areas of dense marine fog forming
over the nearshore Gulf of Mexico waters. South winds are aiding
in driving this fog inland into the adjacent coastal counties and
parishes of southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana. Fog is also
forming on the immediate cool side of a warm front draped across
the area, mainly over southeast Texas. Visibility will improve
from west to east early Wednesday morning as a front pushes
through the area.
