Dense fog blankets B.C.’s south coast Sunday, leading to poor visibility: Environment Canada

Drivers, pedestrians urged to be cautions

A dense blanket of fog is expected to blanket much of the province’s south coast starting Sunday (Jan. 23).

“Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero,” Environment Canada stated. “Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.”

Fog across much of the region could lift as early as midday on Sunday, the fog advisory stated, but weather forecasts for the Lower Mainland from Environment Canada predict fog into next week. Only the west coast on Vancouver Island is not covered by a fog advisory.

Fog could be stronger and last longer near the Georgia Strait.
