Dense fog blankets Southland, lowers visibility on freeways

Fog in Anaheim
Dense fog moved into Southern California early Wednesday and was expected to reduce visibility to a quarter-mile or less on portions of the 5, 405, 101 and 210 freeways, as well as other major routes and highways, the National Weather Service said. 

Weather service officials warned drivers to use their low-beam headlights and to increase the distance between their car and others on the road.

The fog is expected to start lifting around 9 a.m., but there will be low clouds and patchy drizzle hanging over the region for much of the day, with temperatures in the mid-60s at the beaches and the lower 70s further inland.

Wednesday night will bring patchy drizzle with a chance of showers Thursday night into Friday, forecasters said.

Winds are expected to blow back in over the weekend, and the area is likely to start warming up again next week, said Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service.
