Good morning, West Michigan, and welcome to Saturday! We start the day with a Dense Fog Advisory, which is in effect until 11 o'clock. Fog is severely reducing visibility around the area making driving conditions hazardous. Some spots are seeing visibility near zero! If traveling around the area, use an extra measure of caution. The fog will be slow to dissipate, but as the rising sun begins to warm the atmosphere, it will cause rising parcels of air which should do the trick. The big question: how long with the process take? There's no way of knowing precisely, and there's nothing to say that the fog won't hold until early afternoon. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, with temperatures overnight dipping below freezing, there is a distinct possibility of some icy spots forming on the roads. It's another good reason to be extra careful if driving anytime before mid to late morning.
Once the fog is gone, we can look forward to abundant sunshine which is in the forecast for the next few days. Drier air will likely take dense fog off the table tonight and tomorrow morning. Cooler air moves in for early next week with the next best chance for precipitation -- likely a wintry mix of rain and snow turning to snow -- being next Thursday and Friday.
Meteorologist Randi Burns is tracking this morning fog, visibility, and temperatures with LIVE updates from 6:00 to 10:00 on Newschannel 3. She would love to have you along!
Have a super Saturday!
