Valley fog on visible satellite
I found this in my daily check of satellite imagery. Most of the 'clouds' on this image are actually dense fog and valley fog on the western side of the mountains. You can clearly make out the fog following some of the larger river valleys (including the Ohio in the upper right hand side) and topography features in Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama. The fog becomes more widespread and 'out of the valleys' farther to the east in West Virginia. The eastern boundary of the fog has been retreating most likely due to warming from the sun. The Mississippi Valley region is particularly fogged in around Memphis and surrounding areas. Looks like a nice clear day for a drive west on I-64 - I wish I could today!
