Environment Canada Issues Warning About Near Zero Visibility For This Morning

It’s back-to-work and back-to-school today. For the commute in, we are under a fog advisory. It will burn off fairly quickly as the morning goes on and today’s heat wave rolls in but in the meantime, Environment Canada is warning commuters of near zero visibility. Here are the details:

5:15 AM EDT Tuesday 09 October 2018
Fog advisory in effect for:

  • City of Toronto
  • City of Hamilton
  • Burlington – Oakville
  • Caledon
  • Halton Hills – Milton
  • Mississauga – Brampton
  • Innisfil – New Tecumseth – Angus
  • Orangeville – Grand Valley – Southern Dufferin County
  • Shelburne – Mansfield – Northern Dufferin County
  • Newmarket – Georgina – Northern York Region
  • Uxbridge – Beaverton – Northern Durham Region
  • Vaughan – Richmond Hill – Markham
  • Guelph – Erin – Southern Wellington County
  • Kitchener – Cambridge – Region of Waterloo

Near zero visibility in fog is expected or occurring. Areas of fog continue to blanket the region this morning. Visibility of 100 to 200 metres in dense fog is quite common, with near zero visibility observed in places such as Buttonville Airport early this morning.

The commute to work this morning will be affected by the dense fog. The fog will slowly lift later this morning as a stubbornly slow warm front finally moves through to the north of the region. Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. Fog advisories are issued when near zero visibilities in fog are expected or occurring.
