Original

Environment Canada has issued a fog advisory for the majority of the Okanagan.

The advisory is in place for Summerland to Revelstoke, including Kelowna, Vernon, and Salmon Arm and affects the Okanagan Connector, the Coquihalla Highway from Merritt to Kamloops, and the Trans-Canada Highway from Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass.

“Continuing low level moisture and a lingering surface ridge of high pressure is creating areas of dense fog,” said Environment Canada. “Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero.”

The fog is expected to lift by late Friday morning.
