...LOCALLY DENSE FOG WILL CONTINUE THROUGH SUNSET...

THOSE OF YOU TRAVELING THROUGH THE QUAD STATE REGION WILL CONTINUE
TO EXPERIENCE RAPID CHANGES IN VISIBILITY DUE TO FOG FOR THE REST
OF THIS AFTERNOON.

WARM AND BREEZY SOUTHERLY WINDS ARE BRINGING ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES TO THE REGION THIS AFTERNOON. THIS WARM AIR IS MOVING
OVER COLD AIR JUST ABOVE THE GROUND. THIS IS CAUSING THE AIR NEAR
THE SURFACE TO BECOME QUITE SATURATED...LEADING TO THE DEVELOPMENT
OF FOG.

THIS FOG WILL BE LOCALLY DENSE AT TIMES AND MAY VARY RAPIDLY FROM
ONE LOCATION TO ANOTHER.

BE PREPARED FOR RAPID CHANGES IN VISIBILITY WHILE YOU ARE DRIVING
ON ROADWAYS. MAKE SURE THAT YOU KEEP YOUR HEADLIGHTS ON...SIGNAL
YOUR INTENTIONS WELL AHEAD OF TIME...AND LEAVE ENOUGH ROOM BETWEEN
YOURSELF AND OTHER DRIVERS ON THE ROAD.

THIS AREA OF FOG WILL GRADUALLY MOVE NORTHWARD DURING THE
AFTERNOON...SPREADING FROM A BLOOMFIELD MISSOURI...PADUCAH AND
HENDERSON KENTUCKY LINE AS OF 2 PM CST...NORTHWARD NEAR A
PERRYVILLE MISSOURI...HARRISBURG ILLINOIS EVANSVILLE INDIANA LINE
BEFORE DUSK.

AS RAIN CONTINUES TO OVERSPREAD THE REGION...VISIBILITIES DUE TO
THE FOG WILL IMPROVE. DRIVERS WILL THEN NEED TO BE WATCHFUL FOR
PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS AND LOW LYING AREAS.

SHOULD THE FOG BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD AND DENSE THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING...A DENSE FOG ADVISORY MAY BE REQUIRED.
