...Areas of dense fog this morning...

Use caution early this morning as fog has developed overnight in
many areas east of the James River. This fog is locally dense,
with greatest reduction in visibility in areas near the Buffalo
Ridge extending into northwest Iowa, and also along Interstate 29
from Brookings to around Dell Rapids. Patchy dense fog was also
located from northeast Nebraska eastward along highway 20 in
northwest Iowa.

The visibility in the morning fog should begin to improve toward
8 to 9 am.
