A fog advisory is active looking at the early Wednesday morning forecast. By most accounts it is seasonal driving around west-central Saskatchewan, but the Highway Hotline is warning drivers of some extended fog in the southern portion of the region.

Reduced visibility seems contained to the Eatonia/Leader routes on Highway 21 headed south, stretching west past Liebenthal to the Alberta border. See for yourself below, as these conditions also seem to be carrying down Highway 32 to Cabri.

One listener called in to share that things were smooth sailing from Eston towards Saskatoon. Winter driving conditions are being reported for Highway 30 south to Eston, only due to a light fog, same with Highway 21 south of Kindersley and Highway 44 east of Eatonia all the way to Dinsmore.

The official fog advisory posted just after 6:00 AM detailed "areas of dense fog continuing over southwestern Saskatchewan", with conditions expected to improve through the morning.

"Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to SKstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #SKStorm."

The rest of the region is looking seasonal, and the currently effected highways shouldn't be too far behind.
