Another foggy night tonight.. staying mild through the weekend..
Mild temperatures, melting snow, light winds, and clear skies have combined to produce widespread dense fog the past two nights in Winnipeg and the Red River valley, and similar conditions are expected again tonight. Areas of dense fog are expected to redevelop after sunset, with locally near zero visibility at times tonight into Friday morning. Increasing cloud cover tonight may make the fog less widespread than the past two nights, but areas of fog are still expected. The fog has made for some poor travelling conditions, but has also created some dazzling wintery landscapes as trees become coated in a beautiful white layer of hoarfrost (see photo) Milder than normal weather is forecast through the weekend over southern MB before more normal temperatures move in next week.
