Webcams, traffic cameras and satellite imagery show patchy to
areas of marine fog and some low-level stratus occurring over the
Laguna Madre and nearshore Gulf of Mexico waters as light rain and
drizzle moves over the region. Mariners can expect reduced
visibilities of 1 to 3 nautical miles, with occasional dense fog
reducing visibility to less than 1 nautical mile in the heavier
rain through mid afternoon. If dense marine fog worsens, a Dense
Fog Advisory may be needed.

If you must navigate, proceed with caution. Use proper fog
signals. Make sure all running lights are on. Remember to use
your radar and compass.
