...Areas of Dense Fog Across The Region This Afternoon...

Areas of fog, locally dense fog at times, along with patches of
drizzle will continue this afternoon. Rain on top of lingering
snowpack is resulting in fog, with visibilities commonly in the
one-half to 2 statute mile range across the area, but may at
times be as low as one quarter mile. Some improvement to
visibilities is anticipated this evening.

Those traveling along I-77 from West Virginia to North Carolina,
I-81 from Chilhowie to Lexington, or the Blue Ridge Parkway and
other higher elevation roads will need to be alert to reductions
in visibilities. Remember to slow down and use low beam headlights
if traveling.
