Updated: Foggy Days

0

If  you see banks of fog in the morning, that’s the snow pack melting and the vapor starts to condense closer to the ground , that’s what is creating the fog and that means melting snow for the next few days as temperatures stay above freezing until Wednesday.  With the snow pack aiding to the fog conditions, Environment Canada has issues an advisory for the Sault and surrounding area.

Fog Advisory in effect for:

Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay

Extensive fog remains over areas to the north and east of Lake Superior. The fog may be quite dense at times with near zero visibility possible. The fog is expected to persist today, lifting later this afternoon or this evening.

Hazardous driving conditions from nil visibility in dense fog are expected. Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destination.

Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero.

Weather Advisories for fog are issued when near zero visibilities in fog are expected or occurring.
