COURTENAY, B.C- Fog is still hanging heavy over the Comox Valley.
According to an advisory issued by Environment Canada, near zero visibility should be expected, or is occurring, in a broad chunk of the island. The fog is the result of moisture being trapped in a strong temperature inversion.
It’s expected that the fog will be dissipating later in the morning, as a Pacific frontal system approaches the coast. The following areas are covered by the advisory.
- East Vancouver Island – Courtenay to Campbell River
- East Vancouver Island – Duncan to Nanaimo
- East Vancouver Island – Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay
