CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Widespread dense fog that covered much of the Lowcountry Wednesday morning had dissipated. 

A Dense fog advisory are was in effect until 10 a.m. for the entire eastern half of South Carolina, where visibility was cut down to less than a quarter mile in some places. Even after the advisory expired, fog continue to cover major interstates until around noon. 

According to Live 5 meteorologist Justin Lock, “The thick fog is a result of increased moisture coming off the Atlantic combining with clear skies and calm winds overnight. And with winds forecast to remain fairly light today the low cloud will take several hours to break up.”

Lock also says once sunshine breaks out temperatures will rise quickly into the 70s this afternoon.
