The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a special weather statement this morning, saying patchy, dense fog will affect areas north of the Thruway to Lake Ontario.

That includes Orleans, Niagara, Monroe, northern Erie, Genesee, Wayne, Oswego and northern Cayuga counties. Those areas could see a reduction in visibility to a half a mile or less.

“Roadways that may be impacted by dense fog, but not limited to include Interstate 90, Interstate 190 and Route 104,” the Weather Service said. “Visibility can change quickly on roadways.”

The fog may persist until 10 a.m. The day will become mostly cloudy with a high near 70.

On Thursday, it will be mostly sunny with a high near 64, followed by a part sunny Friday with a high near 71, and then a cloudy Saturday with a high near 65.
