HAZARDS

There could be some black ice on area rodways this morning as a result of freezing fog, so remember to turn out your headlights so others can see you and proceed with caution on the roadways if you cannot delay your trip until after temperatures rise above freezing.

…Patchy Dense Freezing Fog Possible This Morning…

Patchy dense fog continues to develop across the region early this morning. Temperatures in the 20s to lower 30s will foster freezing fog for the areas of most dense fog. Visibility of less than one half mile and frost on elevated road surfaces are possible during the morning commute. If driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you. Also, be alert for frost on bridge decks causing slippery roads.
