Minnesotans across the state are waking up to a dense fog Sunday morning.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a warning to drivers as the mist is causing visibility to drop below 100-feet across most of Minnesota.

Weather Channel meteorologist Kathryn Prociv said all but one county in Minnesota is under a fog advisory, with the NWS warning drivers to expect slick patches on the roads and sidewalks thanks to freezing condensation.

The fog started spreading south overnight, enveloping the Twin Cities, Rochester and Albert Lea.

It has provided challenging driving conditions for Thanksgiving travelers using the I-94 corridor since Wednesday, with patches of fog reported in the Fergus Falls, Alexandria and St. Cloud areas at various times over the past few days.

Valley News Live reports that the fog is potentially to blame for a light aircraft crash in Moorhead on Wednesday, with the business plane crash landing in a field just east of Moorhead Airfield, injuring seven passengers.

Sunday's mist should have cleared by around noon, which will be followed by rain in the Twin Cities on what should be a warmer-than-usual Nov. 27, with temperatures topping out at around 45.

Looking ahead, it could be even warmer on Monday, with Accuweather forecasting temperatures in the low-50s in the Twin Cities, before it drops to the low 40s until midweek.
