Unless you’ve got some seriously bright headlines or a reindeer with a small red nose, you might want to consider staying off the roads this morning.
Environment Canada issued a fog advisory for much of southern Alberta Monday morning at 8:40 am, and while Calgary has been seemingly left out from under the blanket, everything to the east of the city is covered, along with the City of Edmonton.
According to the advisory, the fog is expected to stick around until just before noon, with reduced visibility for morning commuters.
“An area of dense fog has formed over parts of the region. Dense fog with near-zero visibility will likely persist until later this morning,” the advisory reads.
“Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.”
The advisory is in place for the Athabasca, Drumheller, Hanna, Fort Saskatchewan, Medicine Hat, Leduc, Camrose, Red Deer, and Spruce Grove regions, as well as the City of Edmonton.
