SAN DIEGO - There is a dense fog advisory Monday morning for the San Diego coast and valleys.
"There's widespread fog on our roads this morning," said 10News Weathercaster Robert Santos. "If you don't see it right in your neighborhood, there's a good chance you will encounter it somewhere along your commute to work and school."
The dense fog advisory will be in effect until 9 a.m.
A dense fog advisory means visibility will frequently be reduced to less than one-quarter mile. Motorists are urged to slow down during such conditions and use their low-beam headlights, and to leave plenty of distances between themselves and other vehicles.
Very low visibility will likely make the morning rush-hour drive more treacherous on streets and freeways, the NWS warned.
A driver involved in an accident in the 9000 block of Capricorn Way told 10News he had a hard time seeing through the thick fog.
Trevis Thomas heard the startling sounds from the crash and went outside to see what happened.
"This morning, I was woken up by a short screech and a loud bang," said Thomas.
He told 10News a driver crashed into his mother's old car, which ended up hitting her newer car.
