...SEA FOG WILL OCCUR ACROSS MUCH OF THE COASTAL WATERS AND IN
CHARLESTON AND SAVANNAH HARBOR THROUGH THE NIGHT...

Considerable moisture stuck between a strengthening inland wedge
of high pressure and a cold front to the south of the area will
result in a continuation of patchy to areas of sea fog through the
overnight period. This includes the coastal waters off the
southern South Carolina and southeast Georgia coast, as well as in
Charleston Harbor, Savannah Harbor and the intra-coastal waters.

Visibility in the fog will be between 1/2 and 1 nm, although
pockets of lower visibility will also occur from time to time.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Mariners are urged to navigate with extreme care. If you must
navigate in these conditions, proceed with caution. Use proper
fog signals, including fog horns. Make sure all navigational
running lights are on.

Please relay any reports of sea fog to the Charleston or Tybee
Island Coast Guard stations and ask them to immediately forward
your report to the National Weather Service in Charleston.
