WASHINGTON — Much of the D.C. region woke to a thick blanket of fog Saturday morning.
The National Weather Service issued a “dense fog advisory” for most of the morning.
The warning included D.C. and its surrounding areas in Maryland and Virginia.
Visibility was reduced to less than one quarter mile in some areasa, and the service advised drivers to slow down, use headlights and try not to tailgate.
After the fog moved on, clouds and the chance for more rain persisted. Storm Team4’s Chuck Bell said Saturday would have an above-average high in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees.
