You’re waking up in a fog this morning. And it’s not because you’re back to routine after the holiday stretch

South Florida is under a dense fog advisory until 9 a.m. Monday.

That means if you’re hitting the road, you’ll need to take some precautions.

Weather forecasters urge you to cut your speed, keep your low beams on and maintain your distance.

Visibility of less than a quarter of a mile in some areas is reported by the National Weather Service.

“It’s widespread and very dense,” said Lissette Gonzalez, a CBS4 meteorologist. “It’s not just inland. It’s even along the coastal areas.”

The fog is shrouding the metro Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach areas.

“Motorists should use caution, particularly over western suburbs early this morning,” the weather service warned.

More inland fog could develop overnight into Tuesday, Gonzalez said.
