CHARLESTON, WV - Dense fog formed in the Kanawha and Elk River valleys in
Charleston on Saturday night. Cold rivers allowed valley temperatures to
reach the dewpoint, causing dense fog to form. Outside of the valleys,
the air remained clear, with a sharp boundary between dense fog and clear
air. Hiking up to a ridge several hundred feet above the city yielded a
spectacular view of the San Fransisco-like valley fog, illuminated from
below by the city lights. The fog slowly flowed through the valley as a
river of clouds. BELOW: Breathtaking view of valley fog over Charleston from a high ridge in Spring Hill Cemetery, from Storm Highway video on The Weather Channel on January 2.
