To track the fog, we can look at the visibility map. Look for locations under 5 miles and that’s where fog will most likely be.

Road temperatures will also be cold enough for any moisture to stick to the ground.

Because of this threat, a Freezing Fog Advisory has been issued for our area until 9 AM Monday. More counties could be added to this list overnight. Click here to view the latest weather alerts.
