Dense fog advisory in Metro Detroit will slow commuters
Drive slow, Metro Detroit commuters, turn on your headlights — though not your brights — and keep plenty of space between the vehicle in front of you, because it’s a foggy Thursday morning.
Just after midnight, the National Weather Service issued a dense fog advisory that will last through 10 a.m., meteorologist Sara Schultz said. The fog is a result of residual moisture, light wind speeds less than 5 mph, and clear skies.
All three Metro Detroit counties are affected by the fog advisory, Schultz said, and visibility is down to a quarter mile or less.
Despite the fog, Thursday is a fairly warm day in Metro Detroit, with high temperatures in the low 60s expected. Overnight, lows will reach the mid 30s.
Friday: Sunny, with a high near 69. South wind 8 to 16 mph, with gusts as high as 29 mph. A chance of showers. Cloudy, with a low around 42. South wind around 16 mph, with gusts as high as 29 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40 percent.
Saturday: A chance of showers. Cloudy, with a high near 45. Windy, with a west wind 14 to 19 mph increasing to 23 to 28 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 40 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50 percent.
