Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A freezing fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile. Also, be alert for frost
on bridge decks causing slippery roads.

* Slow down and give 3 times as much space as normal between
vehicles.

* Shaded areas may be more slippery than unshaded areas.

* Use low beams. High beams reflect back fog making visibility
worse for you and other drivers.

An air stagnation advisory indicates that due to limited movement
of an air mass across the advisory area, pollution will increase.
