Visibility will be reduced to less than a quarter of a mile at times. Black ice or frost could form resulting in very slippery roads, decks and walkways.

Precautionary / Preparedness Actions
If possible, wait for temperatures to warm above freezing before traveling.
Slow down and give 3 times as much space as normal between vehicles.
Shaded areas may be more slippery than unshaded areas.
Use low beams. High beams reflect back fog making visibility worse for you and other drivers.
Fog makes objects appear farther away than they are.
Be ready for low visibility by keeping your headlights clean.
Don`t use cruise control. Most crashes occur because the driver is going too fast for weather conditions.
