Widespread dense fog developing overnight

Fog on the football field.

Days of damp weather left the ground wet, and nightfall brought on some patchy dense fog over Northeast Alabama.  That fog becomes more widespread and gets thicker overnight!

…DENSE FOG ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 AM CDT SATURDAY…

The National Weather Service in Huntsville has issued a Dense Fog
Advisory, which is in effect until 9 AM CDT Saturday.

* TIMING AND AREAS AFFECTED…Dense fog has developed quickly this
evening and will continue until 9 AM Saturday for areas along
and east of Interstate 65.

* VISIBILITY…one quarter mile or less.

* IMPACTS…Dense fog will make driving difficult and motorists
should slow down and use caution if traveling tonight through
Saturday morning.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A Dense Fog Advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile. If driving, slow down, use
your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.

Most of North Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee will be ‘fogged in’ Saturday morning; visibility may be as low as a few hundred yards, so if you have plans to travel a long distance early Saturday, factor this in to your drive time.
