The National Weather Service in Springfield has issued a dense
fog advisory, which is in effect until 4 am CDT Saturday.

few hours. The passage of a cold front late tonight will allow
the visibility to improve by 4 am in most areas.

* Impacts... areas from southeast Kansas into southwest Missouri
will see areas of dense fog tonight. This includes interstates
49 in the Joplin area and Interstate 44 west of Springfield.
Rapid changes in visibility will occur quickly over short
driving distances.

A dense fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile. If driving, slow down, use
your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.
