The National Weather Service is warning of patchy areas of dense fog until 11 this morning. Moist air moving north from the Ohio Valley overnight, coupled with relatively cooler temperatures and an abundant snowpack, has resulted in fog and drizzle across Western New York, the Weather Service said.

Visibility could be reduced to less than a quarter-mile at times.

“Motorists are advised to exercise caution as visibilities may decrease rapidly with little warning,” the Weather Service said in a special weather statement issued at 5:11 a.m.
