... Patchy dense fog and slippery travel this morning...

Dense fog will reduce the visibility to 1/4 mile or less at
times... especially along Ridgetop locations. The fog may freeze on
untreated roads and sidewalks creating slippery travel conditions.
In addition the refreezing of melting snow may also create some
slippery spots this morning. Drive with caution and allow for
extra travel time. Conditions will improve after 9 am.
