Ellsworth County

Lincoln County

Marion County

McPherson County

Saline County

Dense fog with visibility one quarter mile or less is expected. In central Kansas, slick roads and highways are likely very early Tuesday morning, especially on elevated surfaces.

Visibility will vary somewhat tonight, and dense fog will probably not occur the entire time the advisory is in effect. As drier air moves in from the west, dense fog will likely improve, but is expected to linger the longest in counties such as Jewell and Mitchell.

If driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.
