TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The Tampa Bay area is under a Dense Fog Advisory until 9 a.m.

Heavy fog is blanketing the area, creating dangerous conditions for drivers.

Drivers are advised to use caution as the fog is very thick on some roads.

Some fog could linger until about 10 a.m., according to Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Leigh Spann.
