Fog is area-wide this morning and there are patches of dense fog including in far northern Illinois as well as parts of central Illinois and northwest Indiana. There are also areas of drizzle. Air temperatures are inching there way above freezing but pavement temperatures are lagging that, especially north of I-80. One of our spotters in Algonquin, IL reported some slick roads at 4 a.m., and there are likely some patchy slick spots that will continue for a couple hours after daybreak. Use caution and allow yourself extra travel time.
