This week is starting off with a spooky vibe thanks to a fog advisory for the majority of Vancouver Island.

The weather agency issued said the advisory is in effect for Greater Victoria, including the Malahat area, northern Vancouver Island, southern Gulf Islands, and eastern Vancouver Island from Courtenay to Campbell River, Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay and Duncan to Nanaimo.

Areas of dense fog have developed early this morning as a ridge of high pressure continues to build over the province.

According to Environment Canada, visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero.

“If travelling, be prepared for areas of near-zero visibility. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop,” the advisory said.

The fog is expected to lift with visibility improving by Monday afternoon.
