Visibility was reduced to a mile or less, creating hazardous driving conditions. Sub-freezing temperatures may also create patchy slippery spots, especially on bridges and overpasses.

The fog will dissipate around sunrise then snow moves into the region Friday evening.

“If driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you,” the weather service said.
