A special weather alert was issued Friday morning as a thick fog blanketed Central Florida.
The weather alert states visibilities below one half mile at times will cause hazardous driving conditions across portions of Volusia, Lake, Seminole, Orange, Osceola and Brevard counties through 8 a.m.
"We are tracking the worst fog we have seen in some time in Orlando and Orange County," said Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges.
Bridges said the visibility was at 0 at Orlando International Airport Friday morning at 6 a.m.
If dense fog is encountered, drivers are urged to slow down use low beam headlights and leave plenty of distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you.
Bridges added that drivers should allow more time in their morning commute.
Temperatures are supposed to hit a high of 79 degrees on Friday into the weekend, where Saturday will top off at 81 degrees and Sunday at 83 degrees. Rain chances slightly increase on Sunday.
