Ducks swim across a pond Tuesday morning off Parsons Avenue in Brandon.

Tuesday afternoon is forecast to reach the low 70s after dense fog blanketed parts of Tampa Bay early in the day and limited visibility for commuters.

The fog was heaviest north and east of Tampa along Interstate 4 and Interstate 75, where visibility was down to about a quarter of a mile, according to Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

There were also reports of dense fog in Brooksville, she said.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office advised drivers to be extremely cautious. Visibility was limited throughout the county and reduced nearly to zero in some areas, including along Parsons Avenue in Brandon, said Larry McKinnon, a spokesman.

The fog was to move out Tuesday morning.

Wednesday's projected high could reach 75, and highs the next three days should be a little warmer, according to Bay News 9.
