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.
