Dense fog again is resulting in treacherous commutes across the Tampa Bay region early Tuesday morning.

A dense fog advisory is in effect for the Tampa Bay area through 9 a.m. as visibility is down to less than a quarter-mile in many areas, forecasters said.

The fog is forecast to clear out in the late morning, 10Weather WTSP meteorologist Ashley Batey said.

After the fog lifts more sunshine will filter through, helping temperatures warm to near 80 during the afternoon, Batey said.
