Foggy start to Thursday

Posted: Updated:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

DENSE FOG ADVISORIES have been issued by the National Weather Service until 4PM Thursday for near-zero visibility at times.

Dense fog is forming due to the air being flooded with moisture from the melting snow. Under dense fog conditions, visibility may drop under 1/2 mile, creating very hard-to-see conditions. You may have only seconds to react to anything in the road, so drive much slower if you are encountering the fog.

Slick spots are possible early Thursday as temperatures will be near the freezing point. The fog may linger throughout the morning, then clear as rain showers take over Thursday afternoon. While we won't see much for rainfall (~1/10"), roads may be very wet which could slow you down.

Friday will be dry and colder, then we heat back up to near 40 by the end of the weekend. Watch out for light snow at times Saturday afternoon.
