Thick fog was expected to persist in the Lowcountry into Monday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

The forecasting station in North Charleston issued a dense dog advisory that warned of less than a quarter mile of visibility. The advisory was extended until 2 p.m.

That could make for travel difficult, especially along the coast and the barrier islands, the weather service said.

Motorists should use their low-beam headlights and give other vehicles plenty of distance while navigating through the fog.

As the fog slowly dissipates, the sky will remain cloudy Monday, but the temperature should reach about 74 degrees.
