Dense Fog Creates Dangerous Driving Conditions Friday

A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for all of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin Friday evening through Saturday morning.  Visibility has quickly fallen Friday evening, with some locations only reporting a few hundred feet.

With this type of dense fog, driving can become difficult as we lose daylight.  Please use caution if you're heading out this evening or very early Saturday morning.  A warm front lifting into northern Illinois later tonight with allow a few showers to develop and that may help visibility during the overnight.  But where the precipitation remains just drizzle the dense fog will continue.

Winds will increase once the warm front passes Saturday and this should help visibility improve.  Skies will remain mostly cloudy Saturday, but temperatures will warm close to 50 degrees.
