…BARE FOR FOG PATCHES THIS MORNING…
Fog is reported across the region this morning, with the
highest concentrations in mountain valleys and lowland areas
near streams and creeks where fog tends to settle.
Visibility of less than a mile will be common this morning, with
patchy areas of dense fog reducing visibility to one quarter
mile or less sometimes. Dense fog advisories have been issued for
areas where dense fog is more prevalent…like the New
River Valley and the foothills of North Carolina.
A dense fog advisory is in effect until 10:00 a.m. for
foothills and foothills of North Carolina and several Virginia
counties that include Martinsville and Danville where the fog is
particularly dense this morning. A dense fog advisory is also
effect along the Interstate 81 corridor from Christiansburg to
Bristol until 9:00 a.m.
Elsewhere, dense fog will be more patchy in nature, but
prefer valley bottoms. The Greenbrier Valley in West Virginia,
which is particularly prone to fog, will see reduced visibility
this morning… impacting areas near rivers.
If you are traveling this morning, be prepared for rapid changes in
visibility and poor driving conditions. Slow down, use dipped headlights,
and allow additional distance between vehicles.
