Bering Sea Fog
From unlimited visibility to zero, in five minutes. Welcome to the Bering Sea. The weather phenomenon known as sea fog forms when a pocket of warm air passes over the notoriously cold North Sea. Add an onshore component like a wind of 5-20 mph, and the cooling in the bottom of the warm pocket of air is spread upwards and generates a fog; sea fog. Happens in Nome, and can turn a good dredging day into a bad one in a hurry!
