Visibility is very low in Greater Victoria this morning for the second day in a row.
The good news is that the dense fog is only expected to last through until the late morning. Until it lifts though, Environment Canada is warning there will be near-zero visibility in some areas.
“Dense fog has developed due to a ridge of high pressure that is trapping moisture near the surface. The fog is expected to dissipate late this morning,” Environment Canada said in its weather advisory Wednesday morning.
When fog conditions impair visibility for drivers, the government agency urges morning commuters to take extra caution on their commute.
“Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.”
The fog advisory is currently in effect for much of eastern Vancouver Island. Courtenay to Campbell River, Duncan to Nanaimo and Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay all have similar fog warnings to Greater Victoria.
Some flights at Victoria International Airport have been delayed due to the foggy conditions. The airport’s website has details on which flights have been affected.
