Fog Warnings for Central U.P.

The National Weather Service in Marquette County has issued a weather warning for Central Upper Michigan because of dense fog.

The warning is in effect for Houghton, Keweenaw, Baraga and Marquette Counties.  Those areas can expect areas of locally dense fog to reduce visibility as low as a quarter mile at times during the night,  The thickest fog is most likely over higher terrain near Lake Superior.

And, although it’s tempting to use high beam headlights in foggy situations, meteorologists warn motorists to use low beam headlights when driving through fog.
