Dangerous Fog on Newfound Gap Road (441) and Blue Ridge Highway

Newfound Gap Road (441) from Cherokee NC to Gatlinburg TN is experiencing heavy fog especially in higher elevations on the North Carolina side south of Newfound gap parking area and Clingmans Dome road.

Driving is also extremely dangerous on the Blue Ridge Parkways with some areas having visibility of less than 30 feet.

Leaves on the roads and slick roads from this morning's rain and fog made for some very slow traffic and the high potential for accidents.

While colder temperatures are expected again tonight with a potential for ice, drivers should be extremely cautious when driving.
