Morning’s Thick Fog Prompts ‘Dangerous Conditions’ Warning

Once again, dense fog will envelop the Southland this morning, and it could reduce visibility to near zero, making early-morning driving highly perilous on several freeways, forecasters said.

A dense fog advisory issued by the National Weather Service will be in effect in the Los Angeles area and in Orange county until 9 a.m. It will be in force in beach cities, metropolitan Los Angeles, downtown L.A., and the Hollywood Hills.

“Dense fog will reduce visibility to less than a quarter-mile, and to near zero at times, across much of the Los Angeles County Coast through mid- morning,” warned an NWS statement.

It said motorists will face “dangerous conditions” caused by fog on Pacific Coast (1) Highway and the Santa Monica (10), Century (105), Harbor (110), San Diego (405), San Gabriel River (605), and Long Beach (710) freeways, as well as “many surface streets.”

Forecasters advised motorists to reduce speed, avoid tailgating, use low beams, and allow extra time to reach their destinations.

The NWS forecast partly cloudy conditions today in L.A. County, sunny skies in Orange County, and highs of 66 in Newport Beach; 67 at LAX and in San Clemente and Laguna Beach; 69 in Avalon; 72 in Long Beach; 74 in downtown L.A. and Irvine; 75 on Mount Wilson and in Anaheim; 77 in Fullerton; 78 in Mission Viejo, San Gabriel and Palmdale; 79 in Burbank and Lancaster; 80 in Pasadena and Yorba Linda; 81 in Saugus; and 83 in Woodland Hills.

From late Thursday night, a beach hazard statement, which is less serious than a high surf advisory, will be in effect in L.A County, where high surf is expected. High surf conditions will persist through Saturday, when the statement will expire, forecasters said, warning of surf of 5 to 8 feet, with sets of 10 feet possible. In Orange County, a beach hazard statement will be in force from Friday morning through Tuesday afternoon.

Temperatures will decline slightly Thursday and again on Friday and Saturday. Rain is in Sunday’s forecast, followed by showers Monday. The precipitation will result from storm systems that could trigger mud and debris flows in burn areas and unleash strong south-to-southwest winds, forecasters said.
