Good news for LAX: "The Marine layer has lifted across the L.A. County Coastal Communities and as a result, visibilities have improved over the coast," reported the National Weather Service shortly before 1:30 a.m. this morning. Last night's fog diverted one plane yesterday morning to Ontario Airport with passengers sitting on board for around nine hours.

But this doesn't mean the fog has gone away. The NWS says "the clouds and dense fog has moved into the valleys prompting the issuance of the dense fog advisory for both San Gabriel Valley and the San Fernando Valley." The advisory, which means visibility will be reduced to one quarter mile or less, will remain in effect until 9 a.m. this morning.
