Light winds overnight could result in what is known as super fog, near white-out conditions when smoke and moisture in the air combine to reduce visibility. The super fog could affect travel on U.S. 264 on the mainland around 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Winds are expected to be from the west throughout the morning and early afternoon, and a code red advisory for unhealthy air has been issued by the state for Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head until 3 p.m.
The wind will be turning from the southeast later in the day and from the south by Tuesday night.
