Fog Wednesday Morning

After overnight rain tracked through central Virginia, fog developed with decreasing clouds and light winds. A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for these counties highlighted in gray, where visibilities are being reduced below a quarter of a mile in most areas.

The rest of central Virginia is experiencing at least light fog, with patchy dense fog in low-lying spots or near waterways (like rivers, creeks, ponds, etc). Please use caution this morning if you live or travel through the Dense Fog Advisory counties, and also be aware of the potential to drive into sudden, locally reduced visibilities elsewhere in the Commonwealth. Please note that I-95 and I-64 in northern and western parts of the state are especially impacted by the significantly reduced visibilities. The fog should dissipate mid-morning, with decreasing cloud-cover this afternoon.
