It’s a foggy one out there, Calgary!

Environment Canada called a fog advisory for the City of Calgary at 3:36 pm on Tuesday, January 15, warning of near-zero visibility as a result.

The situation is expected to only get worse as we head into Tuesday night, with the advisory stating that the fog will become thicker overnight.

Visibility will, however, improve by late Wednesday morning — if Environment Canada’s predictions are correct, that is.

Anyone planning to operate a vehicle in the next 18 or so hours are warned to do so with caution, as visibility will be seriously reduced out there on the Calgary roads.
