…Areas of Dense Fog Across the Higher Terrain This Morning…

Low clouds and light rain have resulted in areas of dense fog
across the higher terrain of the Blue Ridge this morning from
Boone, to Jefferson, to Hillsville northeast toward Bent Mountain.
Visibilities in these areas, especially above 2500 ft. will drop
to less than 1 mile and in many locations to 1/2 mile or less.
This will significantly impact the Blue Ridge Parkway from the
North Carolina/Virginia line northeast toward Bent Mountain, and
Interstate 77 between Hillsville and the North Carolina line.

If you are planning travel through these areas this morning, use
extreme caution. If you find yourself in areas of dense fog,
reduce speed, allow extra distance between you and the vehicle in
front of you, and use low beam headlights.
