The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a Dense Fog
Advisory, which is in effect until 9 AM EDT Wednesday.

* Visibilities...One quarter mile or less at times.

* Location...Eastern Connecticut, all of Rhode Island and
  Southeastern Massachusetts for the dense fog. All of southern
  New England for the Wind Advisory.

  occur Wednesday afternoon and night peaking late Wednesday
  afternoon and evening.

* Winds...Southwest 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph.

* IMPACTS...A few large tree limbs may be knocked down along
  with the potential for isolated power outages.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Wind Advisory means that sustained winds of 31 to 39 mph are
expected, with gusts between 46 to 57 mph. Winds this strong are
capable of downing small tree limbs and branches, possibly
causing isolated power outages. Driving can also be difficult,
especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.

A Dense Fog Advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile, for at least 3 hours. If
driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of
distance ahead of you.
