Special Weather Statement

Special Weather Statement issued March 4 at 3:08AM EST by NWS Charleston SC

Motorists should remain alert for these conditions this morning. The risk for more widespread dense fog could increase through sunrise and a Dense Fog Advisory could be needed for parts of the area later this morning.
