A little patience — and a good pair of fog lights — may well be in order.
With Friday morning’s commute picking up steam, the state Department of Transportation (DOT) says fog will make for difficult driving conditions. The DOT is already reporting a few accidents around the Seattle area as more drivers head to work.
Like Thursday, the fog is expected to burn off later in the morning. Until then, drivers are advised to exercise caution.
