Fog Advisory

Good morning from the NetNewsLedger Weather Desk. As we kick off this Sunday, 19th November, residents in Dryden and Vermilion Bay need to brace for tricky weather conditions. A Fog Advisory is in effect as of 4:23 AM CST, impacting visibility and travel across the region.

Dense Fog Creates Visibility Challenges The central highlight of this advisory is the dense fog enveloping the area. This fog is not just a light mist; it’s thick enough to significantly reduce visibility, making morning travel particularly challenging. Drivers are advised to be extra vigilant as the dense fog can obscure hazards and other vehicles on the road.

Anticipated Clearing Later in the Morning While the current conditions may start your day on a cautious note, there’s some good news on the horizon. The fog is expected to lift as the morning progresses, but until it does, it’s crucial to stay alert and safe.

Icy Roads Add to the Hazard Temperatures have dipped several degrees below freezing, creating the perfect recipe for icy roads and surfaces. These conditions, coupled with the dense fog, raise the stakes for commuters. Even roads that appear clear might be treacherously slippery.

Travel Advisory: Exercise Caution Given the combination of low visibility and potential ice, we urge travelers to reconsider any non-essential trips this morning. If you must travel, equip your vehicle for winter conditions and prepare for slower-than-usual travel times.

Safety Tips for Drivers

  • Slow Down: Reduced speed is crucial in foggy conditions.
  • Stay Vigilant: Keep an eye on the tail lights ahead but maintain a safe following distance.
  • Be Prepared to Stop: Fog can hide sudden stops or hazards on the road.

Remember: Fog Advisories Matter Fog advisories like this one are issued when visibility is near zero, and the current conditions certainly warrant this level of alert. We advise everyone in the affected areas to take this advisory seriously and stay tuned for updates.

Stay safe, and for the latest in weather updates, keep it locked to the NetNewsLedger Weather Desk.
