With visibility near zero in some areas, Toronto Pearson International Airport reports a dense fog condition, challenging early risers and travellers alike.

Leafs fans were thrilled in a 4-3 win last night over the visiting New York Rangers. The game was settled in a shoot out. Facing a top-tier Rangers team in a raucous arena, the Leafs finally showed the consistency and resilience that have been missing in recent playoff failures. Stanley Cup dreams continue.

Weather Trivia

Did you know fog is essentially a cloud that touches the ground? Fog forms when the air near the ground cools enough to turn its water vapor into liquid water or ice, creating the thick mist we see. Toronto’s geographical location by Lake Ontario often contributes to the formation of fog, especially when warm, moist air moves over the cold lake surface.
