An Environment Canada fog advisory, in place since Thursday morning, was finally lifted around 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
“It is odd to have an extended period like this,” Meteorologist Blaine Lowry told 650 CKOM on Sunday morning.
He blames a combination of factors for allowing the fog to hang over central Saskatchewan for so long.
“A lot of moisture from a snowfall from the previous week that has been trapped near the surface with no systems to drive it out,” was part of the problem according to Lowry.
By Sunday morning a storm system in the United States was helping to clear the fog.
Lowry said the outer reaches of the system is dumping snow in Alberta and providing the stream needed to push out fog cover in Saskatchewan.
He said light fog could develop again overnight but didn’t expect it to be as long-lasting.
“What’s more likely is you’ll (central Sask.) keep low cloud,” Lowry explained.
A fog advisory remained in place Sunday morning along the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border.
