Thunder Bay Encased in Fog Again: Morning Commute Caution Advised

THUNDER BAY – WEATHER – Thunder Bay found a brief respite from the fog that enveloped the city last night, a new advisory reemerges, casting a blanket of caution over the morning commute. Issued at 6:13 a.m. EST, the advisory signals a continuation of visibility challenges for drivers, compounded by a significant frost layer adorning vehicle windshields. Motorists are urged to allocate extra time before journeys to thoroughly clear their windows, ensuring maximum visibility in these obscured conditions.

Morning Mist Engulfs Thunder Bay

The City of Thunder Bay, once again, finds itself navigating through areas of dense fog expected to dissipate later in the morning. This atmospheric condition not only poses a hazard to visibility but also introduces risks on untreated roads and walkways, which may turn treacherously slippery as temperatures hover below freezing.

Navigating Safely Through Reduced Visibility

The sudden plunge into near-zero visibility conditions necessitates heightened caution for those on the road. Travellers are advised to prepare for abrupt visibility changes and to adjust their driving accordingly. Areas of dense fog are expected to lift late this morning. Untreated roads and walkways may become slippery as temperatures are below the freezing mark. Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero.

Slowing down, maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle ahead, and being ready to stop are critical measures to navigate safely through these challenging conditions.

Residents of Thunder Bay are encouraged to stay informed about the latest weather updates and to exercise caution while traveling during the advisory period. The safety of all community members remains a top priority as the city weathers this foggy spell.
