Fog BHP EHT

Fog on the Black Horse Pike and Fire Road in Egg Harbor Township.

ATLANTIC CITY — City police urged drivers to use caution on the Black Horse Pike due to low visibility.

Officers have responded to a few minor crashes on the Black Horse Pike, Sgt. Kevin Fair said. 

"We need drivers to slow down, use headlights, and stay focused on the road rather than multi-tasking," Fair said. 

The warm winds blowing over the cold remaining snowpack has made visibility low. Localized areas of dense fog will be present throughout the day today, with visibility as small as 1/4 of a mile. 

Since some places have more snow on the ground than others, be alert for sudden changes in visibility. This will be one of those days where you could lose a car in front of you in a second or two, according to Meteorologist Joe Martucci. The fog is forecasted to continue throughout the day. 

In fog situations, only use your low beam lights.
