COLUMBIA, SC — October, the “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,” brought a fog and a traffic warning across the Midlands Sunday.
“A dense fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be reduced to less than one-quarter mile,” read an alert from the National Weather Service.
“If driving, slow down. use your headlights and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.”
The fog advisory was to be lifted at 10 a.m.
Affected counties were Richland, Lancaster, Lexington, Fairfield, Kershaw and Aiken.
The National Weather Service is updating its weather forecasts during the federal government shutdown because information it provides protects life and property.
The rest of today’s forecast is a delight: Mostly sunny, with a high near 85. Calm wind becoming southeast around 6 mph in the afternoon
