ORLANDO, Fla. – Fog blanketed portions of Central Florida on Wednesday morning, reducing visibility to less than a quarter-mile in some areas.

The fog will burn off by mid-morning, with Orlando reaching a high of 77 degrees. The average high on this date is 71. 

"We will see lots of sunshine after 9 o'clock," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "Expect a beautiful day."
