A dense fog advisory has been issued for Long Island through Tuesday morning, with forecasters warning of limited visibility making travel difficult. 

The advisory, coupled with a hazardous weather outlook, was expected to last through 6 a.m. Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. A dense fog advisory means visibility will be a quarter mile or less.

The rainy weather that cast a shadow over Long Island for much of Monday was expected to clear by late Tuesday morning, opening the door for some afternoon sunshine, with temperatures around the mid-70s expected.

Showers were likely to dissipate by 8 a.m., the weather service said. The high temperature was forecast to be 77. Tuesday's low temperature was forecast at 58. 

The precipitation came courtesy of a warm front arriving from the south, the National Weather Service said.

Wednesday is expected to be mostly sunny, followed by more showers Thursday.

A small craft advisory was also forecast for waters off the South Shore until 6 a.m. Tuesday.
