Not only are we looking at fog, but we could see freezing fog this morning as temperatures are currently below freezing, ranging between the upper teens and 20s.
Winds this morning are very light with some areas seeing calm conditions and other areas seeing winds up to around 5 mph.
Satellite and radar imagery shows that we have seen mostly cloudy skies through the overnight hours around Siouxland with a small pocket of clear skies in eastern Siouxland.
