    Dense Fog Advisory Issued for SD County

    A dense fog advisory has been issued for San Diego County for Sunday night through Monday morning.

    The National Weather Service issued the advisory Sunday afternoon and said it will begin at 10 p.m. and will last until 9 a.m. Monday.

    "We're expecting dense fog to occur mainly 5 to 10 miles inland, including coastal mesas throughout San Diego," NWS forecaster James Thomas told City News Service.

    "The fog will make for a potentially hazardous morning commute Monday, and bring delays to some of the coastal airports," Thomas added.

    Due to the fog, visibility will frequently be reduced to less than one-quarter mile, the NWS warned.

    Drivers were asked to slow down during such conditions and use their low-beam headlights. The NWS also suggested motorists leave plenty of distance between themselves and other vehicles.

    NWS says drivers on Interstates 8, 405, 15 and 5 should be on alert during Monday morning traffic as very low visibility will likely make the drive more treacherous.
