...Patchy Dense Fog to Hamper Travel Overnight...

The combination of moist ground from earlier day rainfall and calm
winds has resulted in the development of patchy dense fog across
much of the area. Visibilities have dropped below one mile in a
number of locations, but especially along the Interstate 81
corridor from Christiansburg southwest toward Marion. Other
locations seeing severely reduced visibilities include Lynchburg
and Boone.

If you are traveling about tonight, especially along Interstate
81, be prepared for areas of severely reduced visibilities. Reduce
speed, use low beam headlight, and allow for extra distance
between you and the vehicle in front of you.

If conditions continue to worse, a dense fog advisory may be
required.
