Win­ter fog to set­tle over the Tri-Cities

Tri-City Herald - - Local News - — TRI-CITY HER­ALD STAFF

Ex­pect foggy skies and some oc­ca­sion­ally slick roads in the Tri-Cities through Wed­nes­day night, says the Na­tional Weather Ser­vice.

Air qual­ity could de­te­ri­o­rate as a strong high pres­sure sys­tem traps pol­lu­tion near the ground.

The weather ser­vice is­sued an air stag­na­tion ad­vi­sory Fri­day af­ter­noon through at least Wed­nes­day evening.

Res­i­dents, par­tic­u­larly those most vul­ner­a­ble to bad air, can track air qual­ity at ben­ton­cleanair.org.

The Wash­ing­ton Depart­ment of Ecol­ogy rec­om­mends no out­door burn­ing, and that res­i­den­tial wood burn­ing for heat be lim­ited as much as pos­si­ble.

The in­ver­sion means ar­eas of fog through Wed­nes­day, with a risk of fog freez­ing on road­ways most nights and morn­ings.

Overnight lows could dip into the mid to up­per 20s from Sat­ur­day through Tues­day night, ac­cord­ing to the weather ser­vice.
