CSW Weather: Freezing Fog Possible Over Metro- Northern MetroRegion Kansas City By Dawn

As bad as the Sunday morning light snowfall was on some Metro roadways- there is a greater driving hazard shaping up that could affect a much larger area of the Kansas City Metro and north to eastern MetroRegion toward dawn this (Monday) morning...




A "Freezing Fog" advisory was issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Pleasant Hill (K.C.) MO within the hour for many of the areas mentioned above until 10 a.m. Monday morning.




Included are Northland Metro counties of Platte and Clay- but I would not be at all surprised if Metro areas south of the Kansas and Missouri rivers are affected by the dense- if not freezing fog when all is said and done.




Freezing fog basically means a heavy- frost could accumulate on any outside surfaces i.e. roads- sidewalks- cars- etc.- and this could lead to very hazardous driving and walking conditions.




In addition- visibilities will be greatly reduced- and if you don't SLOW DOWN- you could well run into a crash in front of you or motorists who are driving slowly due to bad weather conditions.
