Dense Fog Returns To Sacramento

Motorists are being urged to allow some extra time to get to their destinations Friday morning, because the fog is back in the Sacramento area.

Tom Dang is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento.  He says a dense fog advisory is in effect until 11 a.m.

"We do have many reports of minus a quarter mile visibilities and in many cases, just a few hundred feet of visibility, so certainly it's going to be kind of a tricky commute this morning in certain areas," says Dang.

Dang says the fog is a result of moisture left over from December's storms. So far January has been a dry month, and he says there's only a slight chance for rain next week. 

Dang says the National Weather Service's records go back to 1877.

"At this point, Sacramento itself has only measured 0.1 inches of rain, and the record driest January for Sacramento is 0.7, so if we don't see anything next week, there is that potential to be the driest January on record."
