A dense fog advisory for Long Island has expired, but LaGuardia Airport Monday afternoon was still experiencing some flight arrival delays of up to an hour and a half, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

For the most part, flights at both Kennedy and MacArthur airports were back to normal, following some earlier weather-related delays, the FAA reported on its website.
