Foggy commute for Puget Sound on Tuesday morning

A temperature inversion pushed the fog down below Seattle's skyscrapers on Monday night making for a eerie picture from Queen Anne Hill.

One more morning of thick fog and another dicey commute for the Puget Sound on Tuesday.

A temperature inversion pushed the fog down below Seattle's skyscrapers on Monday night making for a eerie picture from Queen Anne Hill.

By 11 p.m., visibility in Tacoma had dropped to a quarter mile and near zero in some spots on the Kitsap peninsula. Police are telling drivers to turn their lights on in the daytime and slow down for safety.

One accident may already be related to the fog. In Marysville, a car hit a pedestrian on 64th street. Luckily, that person was not seriously hurt.

A weak front will move through the area later on Tuesday, stir up the atmosphere and clear out the fog.

But expect one more foggy morning commute before that happens and another day of slightly degraded air quality. The inversion is packing in the pollution. Air quality ranged from moderate to 'Unsafe for Sensitive Groups' on many sensors around Seattle Monday night.
