URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
842 PM CST Fri Feb 22 2019

...DENSE FOG ADVISORY NOW IN EFFECT...

.Warm and moist air being transported atop relatively cooler
shelf waters has resulted in areas of dense marine fog forming
over the near shore Gulf of Mexico waters. South winds are aiding
in driving this fog inland into the adjacent coastal counties and
parishes of southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. Fog is also
forming on the immediate cool side of a warm front draped across
the area, mainly over southeast Texas. Visibility will improve
from west to east Saturday morning as a front pushes through the
area.
