The National Weather Service has issued a dense fog advisory for Southern Connecticut and Southeast New York until 6 a.m. Friday.

Visibility in some areas has become limited to nearly 1/10 of a mile which can produce hazardous driving conditions. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy issued a statement cautioning drivers for the Thursday afternoon and early evening commute.

"Widespread dense fog is currently blanketing the state resulting in deteriorating visibility. As drivers head out for the afternoon commute, please use caution on the roadways and pay close attention to all vehicles in front of you," Malloy said.
