Episode Narrative Fog develop across northeast Iowa and reduced the visibility to less than mile for an extended period starting on the 29th and continuing through much of the 30th. The fog lingered well into the 31st along the Mississippi River. During this period, an extended period of dense fog with visibilities of a quarter mile or less occurred. As an area of low pressure moved across the Midwest, warm air spread over the region and caused the deep snow pack to begin melting which resulted in the formation of the fog.
Event Narrative The visibility in fog was reduced to less than a mile from the morning of the 29th into the evening of the 31st. During this period, the visibility was reduced to a quarter of a mile or less from the early morning of the 30th into the early morning of the 31st.
