Dense Fog Advisory
Statement Issued: 3:50 am CST on December 13, 2018

... Dense fog advisory remains in effect until 10 am CST this
morning...

* visibility... the visibility will be reduced to one-quarter mile
or less at times.

* Impacts... the poor visibility will result in hazardous travel
conditions. In addition, lingering moisture from yesterday's
snowfall and moisture from the fog may freeze on untreated
roads, bridges and overpasses, leading to icy patches.

* A slow improvement in conditions is expected to begin mid-
morning, but some fog may linger into the afternoon.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A dense fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile. If driving, slow down, use
your low-beam headlights, and keep a safe distance from other
vehicles.

Special Statement
Statement Issued: 10:55 PM CST on December 12, 2018

... Slippery roads and freezing fog expected tonight...

Hazardous driving conditions were occurring over much of the
region due to snow and ice covered roads, and freezing fog.

Temperatures were still a little above freezing in parts of
eastern Wisconsin, but falling temperatures will result in
sub-freezing conditions overnight. Untreated roads and sidewalks
could become ice covered and slippery as wet surfaces freeze.

Fog will also reduce visibilities to less than one-quarter mile
in spots, and may freeze on untreated roads across the region
tonight.

Motorists should use caution tonight, as untreated surfaces,
bridges and overpasses may be ice covered and hazardous, and
visibility will be poor.
