The National Weather Service and Suffolk County Police are warning drivers about dense fog and icy road conditions this morning.

Police are advising motorists to use extreme caution when driving on roadways in Suffolk County.

“The roadways are icy and considered hazardous. There is also limited visibility due to dense fog,” police said.

The National Weather Service issued an advisory through 9 a.m. Wednesday morning for southeast Suffolk County, stating:  “The combination of light winds and abundant low level moisture has caused fog to develop across the area. Temperatures in many locations will remain at or below the freezing mark though mid-morning or so. This will result in icy conditions on any untreated surfaces. Anyone traveling should exercise extra caution and leave plenty of space in front of them.”
