Environment Canada issues fog advisory for Metro Vancouver

ENVIRONMENT  Canada on Wednesday evening issued a fog advisory for:

  • City of Vancouver – including Burnaby and New Westminster
  • Metro Vancouver – northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
  • Metro Vancouver – southeast including Surrey and Langley
  • Metro Vancouver – southwest including Richmond and Delta
  • North Shore – including West Vancouver and North Vancouver

Near zero visibility in fog is expected or occurring over some areas.

Moisture trapped under a strong temperature inversion will continue to give fog and areas of poor visibility on Wednesday night. The fog is forecast to dissipate Thursday morning as a Pacific frontal system approaches the coast.

If travelling, be prepared for areas of near-zero visibility.
