Vancouver fog expected to persist until Tuesday
Monday, January 27, 2014, 6:03 PM -
The high pressure system responsible for bringing record-breaking heat to the Yukon has created dense fog over B.C.'s Lower Mainland.
The patchy fog was thickest in low-lying areas and while visibility was hindered on roadways, the RCMP isn't reporting a spike in accidents because of it.
On Sunday, the fog led to delays at Vancouver Airport in Richmond and the Helijet terminal in downtown Vancouver -- and meteorologists say the conditions are expected to linger until Tuesday.
"We're seeing calm conditions in parts of Vancouver, which is causing the fog to linger," explains Brian Dillon, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
"On Tuesday, a storm system will move through the region and break up what's left of the fog."
