Residents of Metro Vancouver woke up to another foggy day on Tuesday.
A strong ridge of high pressure has stalled over British Columbia and this weather is expected to persist throughout the week.
The fog has caused problems for some flights and BC Ferries routes, as well as on the roads. The Campbell River-Quadra Island route was stopped Sunday night when The Powell River Queen’s radar was not functioning properly, and the ship needs a radar in the fog. It has since started again.
The fog has also been causing delays for Harbour Air flights. Over 200 flights have been grounded since Wednesday due to the fog.
The heavy fog is also believed to be a contributing factor in a fatal crash in Langley Tuesday morning.
Environment Canada says this pattern is expected to persist through the rest of this week. Current indications suggest the foggy weather will end by Sunday.
Motorists are encouraged to allow more time for travel, slow down, and increase following distance.
Fog and valley cloud is expected to persist for the following regions:
Arrow Lakes – Slocan Lake
