Metro Vancouver motorists warned of fog creeping in

Alert issued if zero visibility is expected

Metro Vancouver motorists should drive safely and not over-drive their vision with fog hanging around the next few days.

Environment Canada has issued a fog advisory for Metro Vancouver, including Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Surrey, Langley and Richmond and Delta.

“Near-zero visibility in fog is expected or occurring,” Environment Canada said Thursday.

It added that a strong ridge of high pressure will stay over B.C. through this week. Moisture trapped under a temperature inversion will result in extensive areas of dense fog. “The fog will become more patchy during the afternoons particularly away from the water.”
