Fog could mean delays for Schiphol flights
Foggy weather on Wednesday morning could mean delays for flights to and from Schiphol, the airport said on Twitter. "Visibility and airport capacity are expected to remain reduced during the day", Schiphol wrote.
Meteorological institute KNMI issued a code yellow fog warning for a large part of the country, warning that poor visibility could result in dangerous driving conditions. "Adjust your speed and keep a sufficient following distance", the KNMI warns. "Follow weather reports and warnings." The meteorological institute expects the fog to clear up during the course of the morning, though it will be replaced by low hanging clouds.
Both traffic information service VID and ANWB warned drivers about the fog, though so far it did not cause any massive traffic problems. This is likely due to the fact that the roads are quieter during the holiday season.

Dichte #mist bij Rotterdam. En een open Van Brienenoordbrug. Dat laatste zorgt voor file. Brug wel weer dicht. Je gaat zo weer rijden. #A16 pic.twitter.com/BcW9Nn574y— Rijkswaterstaat Verkeersinformatie (@RWSverkeersinfo) December 28, 2016
