CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Lowcountry motorists will face dense fog on their morning commute Tuesday. The National Weather Service declared a dense fog advisory for Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester and Colleton Counties until 10 a.m., when the fog is expected to burn off.

Fog is being reported at weather stations across much of the Midlands, the Grand Strand and the Lowcountry.

The widespread fog could reduce visibility to one quarter mile or less at times, according to meteorologist Justin Lock.

At 7:30 a.m., visibility in Summerville was down to a quarter-mile because of the fog, and down to an eighth of a mile in Mount Pleasant. Near-zero visibility was reported around Charleston and Johns Island.
