Fog advisory in effect, near-zero visibility expected across much of British Columbia

Travel should be dangerous due to reduced visibility in some places





Environment Canada has issued a fog advisory from Saturday evening (January 14) to Sunday morning for much of the province.

Near-zero visibility in fog is expected or already occurring, Environment Canada says in the advisory issued at 5:37 p.m. Jan. 14.

“Conditions are favorable for areas of dense fog to develop and persist this evening. A pulse will bring showers and showers to the southern interior beginning Sunday morning,” the advisory noted.

“Visibility can be dramatically and suddenly reduced to near zero. Travel should be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some areas. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your headlights and maintain a safe distance.”

Foggy conditions are expected to persist Saturday evening through Sunday morning for the south, and around noon or early afternoon for the central and northern interior.

The weather has been abnormally hot in the interior for the past few days.
