CODE RED: Freezing fog to bring patchy ice to middle Tennessee overnight

(Fox 17 News)

Some areas of middle Tennessee could see freezing fog overnight, bringing a thin layer of ice to some roads on Thursday morning.

SkyWatch17 Chief Meteorologist Katy Morgan said freezing fog happens when fog forms in temperatures below 32°. As a result, freezing fog creates a thin glaze of ice on the ground and other surfaces.

Thursday's freezing fog will be patchy across middle Tennessee, and ice is most likely to develop on bridges, overpasses and roads near lakes and rivers.

Drivers should be cautious on Thursday morning between 12 a.m. and 9 a.m. and watch out for black ice on the roads.
