    Thick fog will slow travel in the D.C. area Wednesday morning.

    A dense fog advisory is in effect for the area until noon. Storm Team4 meteorologist Chuck Bell says foggy conditions should be gone by mid to late morning. The thickest fog is present in and around the immediate metro area, where visibility is current a tenth of a mile or less.

    Drivers should use their low beams when traveling to help with visibility.

    After the fog clears, there's a chance the region will see some light rain and snow between sunset Wednesday and sunrise on Thursday. Snow amounts, if any, will be confined to areas well north and west of the D.C. metro area and will be less than 1 inch.

    The sunshine will return by late Thursday morning but a persistent Northwest breeze will keep temperatures on the chilly side.
