All the ingredients came together Wednesday morning to produce thick fog across the area. We have a ground that’s just above freezing, combined with high dew points, in the upper 30s and low 40s. A front will be pushing into the area today bringing in even more moisture.
Most of the time that we see thick fog in West Michigan, it dissipates during the mid-morning hours. This time with the unique circumstances of the a warm front pushing across Lower Michigan, importing even more moisture, the visibilities will likely remain a problem into the afternoon.
The Grand Rapids National Weather Service has issued a Dense Fog Advisory for all of West Michigan until Noon. While visibilities should improve enough early this afternoon to allow the advisory to expire, the fog will likely remain a problem for drivers this afteroon.
The slideshow on the top has a few of the forecast weather maps.
