Fog is complicating travel on Christmas Eve as rain moves toward Metro Detroit for a wet Christmas.
A Dense fog advisory is in effect for all of Southeast Michigan, including Sanilac, Genesee, Lapeer, St. Clair, Livingston, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Wayne, Lenawee and Monroe counties until 11 a.m. Monday.
Visibility in these areas could drop to a quarter mile or less. It will be particularly important to slow down as it will be harder to see people, animals and cars.
Foggy conditions prompted a dense fog advisory for Metro Detroit on Christmas Eve. Fog was visible in Downtown Detroit during the time of the advisory on Dec. 24, 2023. (Copyright 2023 by WDIV ClickOnDetroit – All rights reserved.)
