Time could be your most important commodity this morning as you go about your routine getting ready for work or school. A dense fog advisory has been posted for much of Acadiana for the early hours of Tuesday. The advisory is generally along and south of Interstate 10 and includes Lafayette, Acadia, Jeff Davis, Iberia, Vermilion, St Martin and St. Mary Parishes.

Visibilities in many locations throughout the region are one quarter of a mile or less. Driving in fog can be especially hazardous due to this lack of visibility. Drivers are encouraged to decrease their speeds and allow a greater stopping distance between themselves and the vehicle in front of them. You are required to turn your headlights on during foggy driving conditions. This increases your visibility to other drivers on the roadway.

The forecast from Dave Baker at KATC TV 3 suggests more of the same. The warm moist air that is in place over the state should remain in place for at least the next couple of days. This could mean more areas of fog tomorrow. A cold front will move through the area on Thursday bringing a chance of showers. The good news is the rain showers associated with this frontal system should be out of the way by the time Friday evening’s Mardi Gras parades roll in the area.
