Fog advisory in effect as more snow heads toward Grundy County

First it was Thursday's slush and snow.

Then warmer temperatures pressing on snow covered spaces led to foggy conditions that worsened during the day on Friday.

A dense fog advisory went into effect for Grundy, Kendall, Kane, and DeKalb counties, including the cities of Morris, Coal City, and Minooka just before 3 p.m. on Friday, and will remain in effect until 9 p.m. Friday night, according to the Grundy County Emergency Management Agency.

Visibility is one-quarter mile or less with dense fog lingering, which will have an effect on commute times. Improvement is expected south of I-80 first, then moving into other areas.

Low visibility could cause dangerous driving conditions. Drivers are reminded to slow down and use their headlights.

Meanwhile, a winter weather advisory is in effect until 12 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26 in Grundy County, as well as LaSalle, Kendall, Kane, and DeKalb counties. Snow is expected with a period of moderate to heavy snowfalls through Friday night into Saturday, with potential isolated areas of snowfall as high as 6 inches. Snow is expected to taper off on Saturday afternoon
