Dense fog continues to affect much of the area this evening, and will likely continue to develop and persist into Saturday morning. In addition to low visibility, temperatures were at or below the freezing mark in areas west and north of Chicago, and this may result in slick spots on some area roadways overnight. Visibility was a little better south and southeast of Chicago, but will likely deteriorate later tonight. Use caution if traveling across the region overnight and early Saturday.

DENSE FOG ADVISORY NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM CST SATURDAY…

* VISIBILITY…A quarter mile or less.

* IMPACTS…Reduced visibilities will result in hazardous driving
conditions through early Saturday. Slick spots are likely on
some road surfaces overnight as temperatures fall below freezing
in many spots.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A Dense Fog Advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile. If driving…slow down…
use your headlights…and leave plenty of distance ahead of you
