The fog continues to linger around southeast Saskatchewan, a common sight since Tuesday. With the fog has come reduced visibility, not only on the highways but in the city as well.

Terri Lang is a warning preparedness meteorologist with Environment Canada. She said there is more than just the reduced visibility to worry about.

“It tends to get better during the day, and then at night as things cool off the fog thickens again and we tend to get that freezing drizzle in the overnight period,” Lang explained.

When a freezing fog like what we have been seeing develops, Lang said it coats everything.

“Particles that you see are actually liquid particles creating the fog, and they’ll freeze to anything that is below freezing, which are road surfaces, cars sidewalks, that kind of thing.”

The fog has been lingering around due to a lack of another system pushing into the region, Lang added. A high-pressure system with a layer of warmer air above it is what is creating the foggy conditions.

There is some sunlight on the horizon, though. The forecast is calling for sunshine early next week. Until then, cloudy skies and fog will provide the weather for the weekend. Be sure to check the latest five-day forecast, and before heading out, you can always check the road report.
