The National Weather Service has extended its dense fog warning through 9 a.m. Monday throughout much of Maryland, including the greater Baltimore area.

The service notes that visibility in some areas will be reduced to less than a quarter mile, creating potentially hazardous driving conditions.

Motorists should use their low-beam headlights, slow down and leave plenty of distance between vehicles ahead, the NWS suggests.
