With warmer temperatures expected today, we will start getting a good melting episode of the snow pack left by the weekend blizzard. With the extra water vapor right at the surface and light winds, we should see some locally dense fog develop tonight. Not just any fog, but freezing fog to be exact. With temperatures expected to drop below 32 degrees tonight, some of those water droplets will freeze on surfaces creating some potential slick travel tomorrow morning.
Here are some tips on driving safely in foggy conditions:
– Slow down and allow extra time to reach your destination.
– Use your low-beam headlights and fog lights if your vehicle has them. Never use your high-beam lights, as they create a glare in the fog and make it harder to see.
– Leave plenty of distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.
– If the fog is very dense, turn on your hazard lights and find a safe place to park until conditions improve.
