Environment Canada issued a fog advisory for parts of east-central and southeastern Alberta on Monday night.

“Dense fog is forming once again this evening in southeastern Alberta,” the weather agency said on its website. “The fog will cause near-zero visibilities.”

Environment Canada said it expected the fog to clear out on Tuesday morning but that in the meantime, travelling on roads was expected to be “hazardous” as a result of the reduced visibility.

The weather agency issues fog advisories when “near-zero visibilities in fog are expected or occurring.”
