Dense Fog Blankets Downtown Houston

A blanket of fog descended on downtown Houston on Saturday morning, December 4, the sixth day in a row that dense fog had settled across areas of southeast Texas, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

Meteorologists at the NWS office in Houston dubbed the week “Fog Week,” and on Saturday morning tweeted a photo of foggy conditions outside their office and said that they could “barely see” their radar across the street.

The NWS urged motorists to drive safely as the fog would reduce visibility on roadways.
