The Los Angeles area had more record-low temperatures as the National Weather Service warned of dense fog this morning.

A dense fog warning was issued for coastal areas as well as for downtown L.A. and surrounding areas. Officials said the fog could reduce visibility to a quarter-mile and that drivers should be careful.

The fog should lessen by mid-morning, according to the NWS.

The cool summer conditions continued as two cities posted records for the lowest maximum temperatures on Friday; Laguna Beach hit only 68 degrees and Oceanside hit only 64.

Laguna Beach broke a record set in 1928 while Oceanside broke a record set in 1914.
