Episode Narrative A strong storm system tracking slowly out of the Rockies and into the Plains, set up a sustained southerly flow of warmer and increasingly moist air into the area. This flow out of the Gulf of Mexico across snow depths of 5 to 12 inches, led to several prolonged periods of dense fog January 5-8, 2008. Visibilities were frequently 1/4 mile or less, and occasionally near zero, which made for treacherous driving conditions.
