Dense fog will slow commuters through rush hour
The National Weather Service has issued a dense fog advisory that will last through rush hour Monday morning in Metro Detroit.
The advisory, which is active until 10 a.m., warns that visibility is down to a quarter-mile or less.
Drivers are advised to leave plenty of distance between their vehicle and others, and to use their low-beam headlights to see and be seen. High-beam headlights reflect back on the driver, further impacting visibility.
When the fog clears, the day will warm up, eventually reaching a high of about 63, said Sara Schultz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Overnight, lows were in the low 40s.
