If there is snow on the ground in the fall season, at a location 50 km away north of a warmer body of water to the south and that location is receiving fog, what is causing the fog that is occurring in the morning despite very little wind and not from a southerly direction.

  • $\begingroup$ You need to provide more information about this place and whereabouts it is in the world. Britain, for example, is close to the Gulf Stream and the prevailing wind is S. westerly, so that explains many British fogs. $\endgroup$ Dec 14, 2019 at 15:29
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, my intention was a large continent but a location close to a large body of water such as a lake. Thank you for your clarification question. $\endgroup$ Dec 14, 2019 at 15:33
  • $\begingroup$ It would be helpful if you edited your question and related it to a specific place, then we could evaluate the exact circumstances. $\endgroup$ Dec 14, 2019 at 15:35
  • $\begingroup$ I agree. But would one normally associate the Britain with snow on the ground in fall? That is a question in itself. $\endgroup$ Dec 14, 2019 at 15:57
  • $\begingroup$ The first snow in southern Britain usually comes in November, but with climate warming over the last 50 years, it rarely settles. On the Welsh and Scottish hills, settled snow is more common in the fall. $\endgroup$ Dec 14, 2019 at 17:16
