A dense fog advisory has been issued for parts of Long Island, with the National Weather Service saying the condition should last overnight.

"Fog is expected to last through the night and dense fog may become more widespread over the next several hours," the weather service said in an advisory Thursday night, warning drivers to use caution.

Once the fog, and some overnight showers, move off, Friday should develop into a sunny day with temperatures peaking at about 60 degrees.

Rain will then return Friday evening, the weather service said.

Showers are likely overnight Friday and could last throughout Saturday with highs in the mid 50s and breezy conditions. Sunshine then makes a return appearance, predicted to be back in force Sunday with similar temperatures expected, forecasters said.

Long Islanders can expect sunshine and highs in the low to mid-50s Monday and Tuesday, the weather service said.
