Environmental conditions associated with dense fog in Illinois

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Dense fog events occurring during cold season nights have been examined for the period 1970-1994. Dense fogs were separated into two categories, those occurring under the influence of a high pressure system and those occurring in the presence of a disturbance. Relative to the high pressure events, dense fog associated with disturbance events tended to form at warmer temperatures and temperature above freezing. The minimum ceiling observed at dense fog onset was lower for events associated with high pressure, and the minimum ceiling observed during the event was lower for both high pressure and disturbance events.
