Fog covers Triangle

Posted August 14, 2008

— Dense fog coated the Triangle early Thursday morning.

A dense fog advisory was issued for the WRAL viewing area as visibility in some areas dropped to a quarter-mile or less, WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said. Visibility increased by 9 a.m. as the fog began to dissipate. It was expected to burn off by mid-morning.

Thursday was expected to be partly cloudy with a high in the mid to upper-80s. Lows overnight are expected in the mid-60s.

An upper-level trough of low pressure over the state Thursday and Friday could induce development of a shower or storm in the afternoon or evening hours both days.

    It must be global warming. Cooler than normal Summer, Rainy, the lake is 7 inches down from normal.

    I mean - it is crazy! It is all Al Gore's fault for lying!

    Chris Hohmann (WTVD) said numerous times yesterday that there will be fog this morning. WRAL still has the best website though.

    All of the tv stations get their information from the National Weather Service. That's where you should point the finger.
