Dense freezing fog has prompted a dense fog advisory around the area through the morning hours ahead of a wintery mix moving through later tonight.
Today is not only start off chilly but foggy. Freezing fog has blanketed the area, prompting a dense fog advisory due to the reduction in visibility. Reduced visibility will be ranging from under a mile up to 4 miles around the area this morning before fog slowly starts to clear through the early afternoon hours. The dense fog advisory will remain in effect until 12 pm today. With the fog, we are also dealing with rather cloudy skies, which is why the fog is not showing any signs of clearing until the late morning and early afternoon hours. Temperatures will slowly rise into the upper-20s by the afternoon with calm to very light winds in the mix. Tonight, we will reach a low in the low to mid-20s through the mid to late evening hours, which means temperatures will slowly rise through the overnight hours into the upper-20s. A wintery mix of snow and rain/freezing rain will move into the area tonight between 9 pm and 10 pm. We are not expecting any accumulating ice at this time but we could see a dusting or half inch or so of snow by tomorrow morning. The wintery mix will start to clear out of the area between 3 am and 4 am Wednesday leaving behind more freezing fog around the area.
