A dense fog advisory has been issued Thursday for the Sacramento region.

The advisory remains in effect until 11 a.m. Thursday. The weather warning pertains to the Delta, the northern San Joaquin Valley and the southern Sacramento Valley, including Sacramento, Stockton and Davis.

The National Weather Service reminds motorists that the dense fog makes for hazardous driving. A dense fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be less than a quarter mile.

Slow down, use headlight low beams and leave plenty of distance between the vehicle ahead, forecasters advise.
