SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A dense fog advisory is in effect until Monday this morning in the Bay Area, according to the National Weather Service.

The advisory is in effect until 8 a.m. The fog is on most bridges, especially the Golden Gate and Bay Bridge.

Visibility could be reduced less than a quarter of a mile, weather officials said. The low visibility could make driving difficult.

The officials encourage drivers to reduce their speed, use their headlights and leave plenty of distance between them and the car ahead.

Passengers on flights arriving at San Francisco International Airport are seeing delays averaging 91 minutes, according to Federal Aviation Administration officials. The delays are due to the low clouds covering the airport.
