Anyone planning to hit the road for the long weekend Friday morning might want to wait out the fog.

An official fog advisory was put on by Environment Canada Friday morning at 7:54.

"If travelling, be prepared for areas of near-zero visibility. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop."

Fog patches are expected to dissipate later on, though for now areas of dense fog, with near-zero visibility, are occurring around west-central Saskatchewan roadways.
