Is fog just low clouds?

It's foggy out!

Fog is usually associated with fair and calm weather. Fog, simply put, is when droplets of water vapor become suspended in the air near the ground. Fog is created when the temperature of air and the dew point of air become the same or nearly the same.
The most visible sign of fog is no visibility or reduced visibility! People sometimes refer to fog as “clouds at ground level” which can be an accurate description.
Many different weather combinations can result in fog but the main factor for fog to form is saturated air.
