Forecasters say a mostly dry, high pressure system that has been sitting over the Northwest for a couple of weeks is causing dense fog in many parts of Washington. The National Weather Service said visibility early Wednesday morning in the central Puget Sound area was a quarter-mile or less. The high pressure has created a condition where the coast and mountains are sometimes more likely to see sunshine than lowlands and valleys. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
