Driggs, St. Anthony, and Island Park.

ice on roadways, especially bridges and overpasses, making them
slick.

A dense fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile. If driving, slow down, use
your low beam or fog headlights, and leave plenty of distance
ahead of you.
