How is Anti-Cyclones related to the formation of fog ?

Its a decending air mass of high pressure..

Decends..

Warms and brings dry/clear condtions..

This is where I'm stuck, in the winter it will be cold at night as heat isnt trapped in by clouds but how exactly is fog formed ?

Sorry if this doesnt make much sense but im in abit of a puddle about it all .. thanks for replys..

carrying on from where you finished......

as there are no clouds, all the heat is radiated from the ground surface and lost ( as there are no clouds) and the ground cools as a result. Then all the air close to the ground surface cools and the water vapour it contains condenses to form fog droplets.
If there is no wind then these fall to the ground to form dew, whilst if there is a light breeze then it helps in development of a fog screen.

I think most of it is right, though I may be wrong!
