Dense Fog Advisory for Much of Central and North Alabama Overnight

| November 3, 2017 @ 9:56 pm

Clear skies allowed a beautiful moonrise tonight of a spectacular Hunter’s Moon. But coupled with a moist low-level atmosphere, it has produced conditions that are favorable for dense fog.

Jasper is already down to 1/2 mile visibility and Cullman one mile. Sylacauga is down to 1/4 mile.

In Northeast Alabama, visibilities are down to 1.25 miles at Fort Payne, 0.25 miles at Scottsboro and 0.50 miles at Redstone Arsenal.

The NWS in Birmingham has issued a Dense Fog Advisory for these counties in Central Alabama:
Blount, Calhoun, Chambers, Cherokee, Chilton, Clay, Cleburne, Coosa, Etowah, Jefferson, Randolph, Shelby, St. Clair, Talladega, Tallapoosa and Walker.

The NWS in Huntsville has issued a Dense Fog Advisory for these counties in North Alabama:
Cullman, De Kalb, Jackson, Limestone, Madison, Marshall and Morgan.

Be alert if you are driving overnight or Saturday morning. Suddenly reduced visibilities can make driving hazardous.

An area of storms is weakening over North Central Mississippi. It is also turning more southeasterly. It could affect West Central Alabama later tonight but it should continue to weaken.

Storms over southern Lawrence and southeastern Walker Counties will affect parts of Cullman and Morgan Counties with lightning and heavy rain.
