Dense Fog Advisory now in effect

The National Weather Service has issued a Dense Fog Advisory for Shiawassee, Genesee, Lapeer, Oakland, St. Clair, and Livingston counties until 7 pm Friday. As warmer temperatures move into Mid-Michigan, fog develops due to the warmer air moving over colder ground covered in snow. This is called advection fog. Visibilities at times will be near zero. Use extra caution when driving, use low beams, and put extra space between you and the vehicle in front of you should you need to slam on your brakes.
