Environment Canada issues fog advisory for Metro Vancouver

Jan 4 2018, 2:12 pm

The fog is back.

So much so that Environment Canada has issued an advisory due to near zero visibility occurring over some areas.

“Moisture trapped under a strong temperature inversion will continue to give fog and areas of poor visibility until at least mid morning. The fog is forecast to dissipate later this morning as a Pacific frontal system approaches the coast,” Environment Canada says.

If travelling, they warn that motorists should be prepared for areas of near-zero visibility.

The Fog advisory is in effect for:

  • City of Vancouver – including Burnaby and New Westminster
  • Metro Vancouver – northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
  • Metro Vancouver – southeast including Surrey and Langley
  • Metro Vancouver – southwest including Richmond and Delta
  • North Shore – including West Vancouver and North Vancouver

The fog is expected to clear by afternoon, making way for rain… and a lot of it over the coming days.

But hey, at least it’s not snow.

Welcome back, Fogcouver.
