SALT LAKE CITY — Many Utahns in northern parts of the state woke up to fog Tuesday morning, making for tough visibility and a spooky ambience.

Officials put a dense fog advisory in place until 11 a.m. Tuesday that impacted cities from Pleasant View to North Salt Lake, but fog caused issues in areas South of the advisory.

Visibility was reportedly less than a quarter mile in certain areas due to the fog, which made for some hazardous driving conditions.

By mid-morning, most of the fog cleared out, leaving behind some chilly temperatures.


A representative with the Salt Lake City International Airport said the fog caused some delays Tuesday morning. As of 10 a.m., the airport saw seven delays between 15 and 45 minutes due to the weather conditions.

Salt Lake City Police said the fog seen in Rose Park and Glendale areas served as a good reminder to drivers to slow down and make sure there is extra distance between vehicles.
