Fogs form when moist air is cooled, or when cool air has water vapor added to it. In either case, the air near the Earth's surface becomes saturated with water vapor and droplets form. Fogs are more common in certain regions than in others because one or more of the mechanisms of fog formation are more prevalent there.
