Metro Vancouver motorists warned of fog creeping in

Alert issued if zero visibility is expected

Metro Vancouver motorists should drive safely and not over-drive their vision with fog hanging around the next few days.

Environment Canada has issued a fog advisory for Metro Vancouver, including Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Surrey, Langley and Richmond and Delta.

“Near-zero visibility in fog is expected or occurring,” Environment Canada said Thursday.

It added that a strong ridge of high pressure will stay over B.C. through this week. Moisture trapped under a temperature inversion will result in extensive areas of dense fog. “The fog will become more patchy during the afternoons particularly away from the water.”

“If travelling, be prepared for areas of near-zero visibility.”

Fog advisories are issued when near zero visibilities in fog are expected or occurring.
