Near zero visibility occurring in many cities in Southern Ontario

Thicker than pea soup? Environment Canada is calling for near zero visibility due to fog in the Niagara Region tonight (November 2).

The site says the fog will move in from Lake Ontario and first blanket Lincoln, Grimsby, St. Catharines and Niagara-on-the-Lake before slowly creeping south to cover the Lake Erie municipalities of Wainfleet, Port Colborne and Fort Erie over the course of the night.

“Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero,” says the site.

“Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.”

Fog advisories are only issued when near zero visibilities in fog are expected or occurring. The map below indicates the entire region will be fogged in.
