After torrential downpours over the past two days, dense fog has descended upon all of central Virginia Thursday morning. Visibilities this morning are being reduced in places to a half-mile or worse. Please use extra caution commuting this morning, as visibility can suddenly plummet. Allow extra distance between you and surrounding vehicles, slow down, and use your low-beam headlights, even though we are past sunrise. Fog should begin to mix out by mid-morning.
Here are some of the pictures from this morning's dense fog around the Richmond metro area.
