Patchy, dense fog moves into region

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana says dense, patchy fog is moving into northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio, and visibility in some areas might drop to a quarter-mile.

It said areas in the following counties are likely to get at least some of this fog by early Thursday evening:

  • Indiana -- Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wells and Whitley.

Major roads in the area include Interstate 69, the Indiana Toll Road, U.S. 30, U.S. 24, U.S. 6 and U.S. 20.

Rain showers later in the evening are expected to help clear out the fog, the weather service said.

In the meantime, it urged drivers to use caution, allow extra travel time and slow down if conditions worsen.
