The National Weather Service on Monday night issued a dense-fog advisory for Los Angeles County cities, warning that visibility could be reduced to less than a quarter-mile.

The fog was expected to roll into inland areas including downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood late Monday and early Tuesday but would be most dense in coastal areas from Malibu to Long Beach, the Weather Service said.

"Roadways along the coast will likely be impacted," the agency said in a statement. "Motorists are advised to slow down and use low beam headlights."

Later Tuesday, high pressure is expected to result in above-normal temperatures for the Los Angeles area before giving way to cooler weather Wednesday.
