...DENSE FOG EXPECTED TO IMPACT THE CHARLESTON HARBOR THIS  
EVENING AND OVERNIGHT...  
 
SOUTHERLY WINDS ARE BRINGING UNSEASONABLY WARM AND MOIST AIR OVER  
THE COOLER OCEAN SHELF WATERS, CAUSING AREAS OF SEA FOG TO FORM.  
PILOT BOAT OBSERVATIONS, WEBCAMS ALONG THE COAST, AND SATELLITE  
IMAGERY INDICATE A LARGE SWATH OF FOG GENERALLY WITHIN 20 NM OF  
THE COAST. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO EASE THIS EVENING, MAKING IT  
EASIER FOR THE FOG TO MOVE INTO THE CHARLESTON HARBOR.  
VISIBILITIES COULD DROP BELOW 1 NM THIS EVENING OR OVERNIGHT. A  
DENSE FOG ADVISORY MAY BE NEEDED.  
 
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...  
 
MARINERS ARE URGED TO NAVIGATE WITH EXTREME CARE. IF YOU MUST  
NAVIGATE IN THESE CONDITIONS, PROCEED WITH CAUTION. USE PROPER  
FOG SIGNALS, INCLUDING FOG HORNS. MAKE SURE ALL NAVIGATIONAL  
RUNNING LIGHTS ARE ON.
