It’s foggy in parts of the Sacramento region this morning, so stay safe on the roads as you head out to Thanksgiving meals or a local turkey trot.

The Sacramento region will see patchy fog until 10 a.m., according to the National Weather Service. Visibility at Sacramento Executive Airport was down to a quarter-mile as of 6 a.m.

Those heading out to Run to Feed the Hungry or the region’s other races in Folsom, Elk Grove, Woodland or Roseville should bundle up. Temperatures this morning are in the 30s, cold enough to warrant hats, long sleeves and gloves.

At least it will remain dry through Thanksgiving Day for families heading out for hikes or touch football games. Rain isn’t expected until Friday night at the earliest.
