A dense fog advisory is in effect for the Shore area for Friday morning, but the marine layer is expected to give way to sunshine and record high temperatures in the afternoon.
According to the National Weather Service, fog will remain present in the region until about 11 a.m. Friday, becoming worse the closer one gets to the ocean or other bodies of water. Visibility of one-quarter mile or less in dense fog is expected, the advisory said.
“If driving, slow down, use your low beam headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you,” the notice said.
Once the fog clears, skies will become mostly sunny, with a high near 70 – record territory. There will be a calm wind becoming west around 5 m.p.h. in the afternoon.
There will be a chance of showers overnight Friday into Saturday, followed by showers and thunderstorms during the day Saturday. The temperature will remain mild at 65 degrees. The thunderstorm threat will grow after 3 p.m. and continue through midnight. The low Saturday night into Sunday will drop to 48 degrees, recovering to a high of 59 on Sunday with sunny skies.
