The National Weather Service in Jackson has issued a Dense Fog Advisory which is in effect until 10am Saturday for all of Eastern Kentucky.
The recent freezing rain, followed by a period of warm rain coupled with warm and moist air from the south has kept the low clouds locked into Eastern Kentucky. Due to the saturated air, periods of drizzle will cause the clouds to lower into the valleys creating widespread areas of dense fog. Especially hazardous will be the area along and north of the Mountain Parkway where temperatures are hovering around the freezing mark. With only a degree or two drop in temperature the fog could freeze on contact with exposed surfaces. This will create slick conditions on area roadways, sidewalks, porches and especially bridges and overpasses.
Exercise extreme caution if you must travel tonight as icy patches, other cars, pedestrians and animals will be nearly impossible to see until you are within a few yards of them.
A Dense Fog Advisory means visibilities will frequently be reduced to less than one quarter mile. Motorists are urged to slow down, use low beams, and to leave plenty of distance ahead of you.
