Fog Advisory

Dryden – WEATHER – A fog advisory is currently in effect for Vermilion Bay and Dryden, creating near-zero visibility across the region. Travellers are advised to proceed with caution as dense fog envelops the area, promising a gradual retreat as the morning progresses.

Today’s Weather Overview

Current Conditions: As of 4:21 AM CDT at the Dryden Airport, the environment is shrouded in mist, with visibility significantly reduced to just 1.2 km. The current temperature stands at a cool 2.2°C, mirroring the dew point and indicating a saturated atmosphere with humidity at 100%.

The pressure is measured at 100.8 kPa, with a gentle south breeze moving at 4 km/h. Residents and travellers alike are cautioned as the dense fog may reduce visibility suddenly to near zero, affecting travel plans and safety on the roads.

Forecast

Expected Conditions: As the fog is expected to dissipate this morning, the following days forecast a gradual improvement in visibility and weather conditions. However, travelers should remain vigilant, particularly during early morning and late evening hours when the risk of fog formation is highest.

The temperatures are expected to fluctuate slightly, maintaining a cool but comfortable range for this time of the year. No significant precipitation is anticipated, although the saturated air may lead to misty mornings. Winds are forecasted to remain light, offering little relief from the lingering moisture in the air.

Wardrobe Recommendations

Given the current and expected conditions, it’s advisable to dress in layers to adapt to the cool temperatures and potential moisture in the air. A waterproof or water-resistant jacket would be prudent for the morning hours.

Footwear with good traction is recommended due to the increased risk of slick surfaces, especially on untreated roads and sidewalks.

Weather Trivia

Did you know? Fog forms when the air near the ground cools down to the point where it can no longer hold all the moisture, which condenses into tiny water droplets suspended in the air. The phenomenon is particularly common in areas like Vermilion Bay and Dryden during transitions between seasons when temperature variations are significant.
