More Fog in the Plains Nov 13, 2017

Residents and travelers throughout the Great Plains—especially parts of Kansas and Nebraska—will contend with another round of fog.  Monday night and into Tuesday morning, these areas could see visibility reduced to a quarter of a mile or less.   The fog will be the most dense between 5am and 9am Tuesday.  The atmosphere will become saturated as the dew point temperature matches the air temperature.

For example, the forecast low temperature in Hastings, Nebraska is 42 degrees.  If the dew point temperature also bottoms out at 42 degrees, the atmosphere will become completely saturated.  The relative humidity is therefore 100%.  Fog will form.


This will be the case along cross-country corridors throughout the Plains, such as Interstate 70 and Interstate 80.  Travel at a safe speed and be sure to use your headlights while on the road….just not the bright lights!
