ATLANTA (AP) - The Federal Aviation Administration says heavy fog has led to delays at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The FAA’s air traffic control system command center says low visibility Monday afternoon led to some incoming flights being delayed by about an hour, and some departing flights are experiencing taxi delays and gate holds of between 16 and 30 minutes.

Forecasters are also asking drivers to use extreme caution while dense fog reduces visibility in much of north and central Georgia.

A dense fog advisory from the National Weather Service spanning most of Georgia Monday is expected to expire at 6 p.m.

Forecasters say visibility in some areas may be reduced to a quarter mile or less.

Officials say drivers should reduce their speed, use their headlights and avoid tailgating.
