Heavy fog to burn off at Golden Gate Bridge by midday

Heavy fog conditions are in effect on parts of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, the California Highway Patrol said Friday morning.

Fog is heavy on westbound Interstate Highway 80 going over the bridge from the East Bay into San Francisco, the CHP said around 8 a.m. Fog is also heavy on the south end of the Golden Gate Bridge near the toll plaza, according to the CHP.

The good news: “This is pretty shallow fog, so once the sun rises and the winds pick up a little bit, the fog should dissipate rapidly,” said Drew Peterson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Peterson said the fog should clear out in most parts of the Bay Area around 10 or 11 a.m. Friday.

In the meantime, driving in fog is dangerous, according to the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Drivers should turn on windshield wipers and use low-beam headlights when driving in fog, according to the DMV Driver’s Handbook.
