What is Freezing Fog?

December 29, 2007 at 1:15 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Often times in North Texas, we get fog.

Fog usually forms at night or early in the morning, with wet ground or very high low level humidity, clear skies and light winds.

Usually on foggy mornings, that fog will condense moisture on our lawns, sidewalks and highways. When temperatures drop below freezing, that moisture condensing will freeze.

Since visability is lower in the fog, and its usually at night or in the predawn hours, often drivers can’t see that the road is wet, or in the case of freezing fog, is icy!

The best advice on foggy winter mornings that are below freezing, is to assume there are icy spots on your drive and drive accordingly.
