Patchy fog reported throughout Tampa Bay

Heavy fog was reported in some areas of Tampa Bay early Friday, but the worse of it seems to have cleared, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Brian McClure.

In central Pinellas, visibility was limited to about 100 feet early Friday. Areas in Hernando, Hillsborough and Pasco were also affected.

The denser fog was pushed away by dry, cool air moving into the region, McClure said, but some patchy fog will remain until sunrise.

The National Weather Service warned drivers of foggy conditions early Friday along the coast of southwest Florida.

Visibility will remain between 2 to 5 miles, with some areas dropping down to a quarter mile, the weather service said.

Drivers were advised to slow down, use low beam headlights and allow extra time for commuting.

  2. Hackers hide cyberattacks in social media posts


    SAN FRANCISCO — It took only one attempt for Russian hackers to make their way into the computer of a Pentagon official. But the attack didn't come through an email or a file buried within a seemingly innocuous document.

    Jay Kaplan and Mark Kuhr, former NSA employees and co-founders of Synack, a cybersecurity company, in their office in Palo Alto, Calif., in 2013. While last year's hacking of senior Democratic Party officials raised awareness of the damage caused if just a handful of employees click on the wrong emails, few people realize that a message on Twitter or Facebook could give an attacker similar access to their system.
