Science / Weather / Upslope Fog: Fog that forms when warm, moist surface air is forced up a slope by the wind. It is adiabatically cooled to below its initial dew point, which means the air cools by expansion as it rises. It forms best where there is a gradual slope, and it can become quite deep, requiring considerable time to dissipate.
Fog Verb Synonyms: trance, daze, stupor, brown study, confused state, coma
Fog Noun Synonyms: mist, haze, smog, vapour, cloud, pea-souper
