Foggy conditions in West Central Sasktchewan continue to linger this morning.  Fog that was expected to clear up yesterday afternoon, lasted throughout the day, with visibility becoming poor throughout many parts of the region.  The fog is once again expected to clear up this afternoon but is also expected to return overnight and into tomorrow morning (which if yesterday is any indication might mean we won't get much of a break from foggy conditions today)
