...PATCHY FREEZING FOG MAY REDUCE VISIBILITY TO NEAR ZERO AT
TIMES...

THE NEAR RECORD COLD AIR SETTLING OVERTOP THE REGION TONIGHT IS
VERY DRY AND NOT CONDUCIVE FOR WIDESPREAD FOG...DESPITE CLEAR
SKIES AND LIGHT WINDS.

HOWEVER...IN SELECT PATCHES...MAINLY IN A LOW LYING AREA OR
TYPICALLY FOG PRONE AREA...A MOTORIST MAY ENCOUNTER A BRIEF PATCH
OF REDUCED VISIBILITY. IF DRIVING...SLOW DOWN...AND BE
CAUTIOUS...ESPECIALLY IF TRAVELING THROUGH SOME HILLY TERRAIN OR
OTHER RURAL SETTING WHERE THIS PATCHY FOG IS MORE LIKELY TO OCCUR.

WITH THE COLD TEMPERATURES...THE FOG WILL BE FREEZING FOG...AND
MAY HELP CREATE SLICK PATCHES ROADWAYS THAT MAY HAVE BEEN CLEARED.
HARD TO SEE REFREEZING ICE MAY ALSO BE PRESENT AND CREATE A TRAVEL
HAZARD...SO JUST TRAVEL WITH CAUTION AND CARE IF YOU ARE ON AREA
ROADWAYS DURING THESE EARLY MORNING HOURS.

LOTS OF EARLY MORNING SUNSHINE SHOULD HELP BURN OFF ANY LINGERING
ISOLATED PATCHES OF FOG AND LIKEWISE HELP CONTINUE TO IMPROVE
OVERALL ROAD CONDITIONS.
