Special Weather Statement issued November 05 at 11:33PM EST by NWS
...Areas of Dense Fog Expected Overnight...
Fog was developing and becoming more widespread throughout the Piedmont and Foothills of Virginia and North Carolina. With moist ground from the widespread rainfall of Monday, light winds, and cool temperatures, the fog is expected to become more widespread and dense in some areas. This will especially be the case east of the Blue Ridge.
A frontal system is expected to move into the area later tonight, mainly after 4 AM EST, bringing showers and an isolated thunderstorm into the area from the west. This precipitation area and the associated increase in westerly winds will tend to break up areas of dense fog, but likely will not reach areas east of the Blue Ridge until after daybreak.
Conditions will be monitored closely throughout the night. If widespread dense fog develops, a Dense Fog Advisory will likely be needed later tonight for part or all of this area.
If traveling tonight and through the early morning hours Tuesday, use low beam headlights in areas of fog, reduce speed, and allow extra distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.
Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or Commercial Radio for the latest weather information.
