Ontario's Weather Is Being Overtaken By A Dense Fog This Morning & The Photos Are So Spooky
Fog advisories are in place for so many cities.
Drivers beware! Ontario's weather forecast is predicting hazardous travel conditions on Thursday morning as a dense fog creeps into most of the province.
According to Environment Canada, the hazy conditions will force motorists to contend with "near zero visibility" throughout their morning commute on Thursday, which could increase the risk of accidents.
"Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility," the agency warns.
"If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop," the statement added.
Evening driving conditions will likely be much better as the fog is expected to dissipate as the day progresses.
Fog advisories have been issued for over 27 areas in southern Ontario, including:
- North Bay
- Greater Sudbury
- Parry Sound
Photos of the fog have already begun popping up on social media, and it's looking totally spooky.

Some downtown Toronto residents couldn't even see the city from their balconies, which is as impressive as it is unsettling. Let's hope it's a weather phenomenon and not a precursor to an alien invasion.

\u201cGood morning, lovely photographic foggy morning, and my bus cutting through it to take me to the subway to get to my office. Happy shooting to the Toronto photographers who can get out to enjoy sunrise through the mist instead of me sitting on the subway! #dlws #Fog\u201d— Stephen Gardiner (@Stephen Gardiner) 1667471471
