PHOENIX – Patches of fog created potentially dangerous driving conditions on West Valley roadways Wednesday morning.

The National Weather Service issued a dense fog advisory from midnight until 10 a.m. for a swath of southwest and south-central Arizona.

The impacted region includes the Tonopah, Buckeye and Avondale areas along Interstate 10 and State Route 85.
