Special Statement
Issued: 5:48 AM CDT Mar. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Areas of fog and patchy dense fog this morning...

Areas of fog have developed overnight across a large portion of
the state, including a few dense fog locations dipping to a
quarter mile or less. Foggy conditions are likely to continue
through sun up and the following couple of hours as diurnal
heating and increasing winds work to dissipate the fog and
accompanying stratus.

Travel, especially around low lying areas and near bodies of
water, may be hazardous at times with severely reduced
visibilities. Drivers should use caution when driving this morning
and provide extra time to reach their destination in anticipation
of potentially foggy travel conditions.
