If you are up early, you've probably noticed some foggy mornings over the past couple of weeks.  That's because this is the time of year when we see the thickest fog here in Upstate New York.

According to the National Weather Service, the climate and terrain of this region make it ideal for fog to roll in during the early fall.  Warmer days and cooler nights, combined with the hills and valleys of Central New York tend to create more fog.

The type of fog we see in the fall is also the most dangerous for driving.  It tends to pop up in patches so as were driving the speed limit, we can suddenly lose visibility.

If you happen to be driving early in the morning when there's been a cool night (temperature below 60), be prepared for fog.  This is the season.
