...Areas of fog on the east slopes of the Rockies this evening...



Clearing skies and decreasing winds on the east slopes of the 

Rockies this evening after this afternoon's snow showers, have

allowed areas of fog to form on the plains.



Visibility will be reduced to less than one mile in these foggy

areas.



Westerly winds should increase later this evening, which should

help decrease the fog.
