A fog advisory is in effect for much of central and southern Alberta this morning including the city of Calgary.
There’s near zero visibility in some areas, and along with the fog there is some drizzle or freezing drizzle where temperatures are below zero.

The following is the advisory from Environment Canada:

Widespread fog has developed across central Alberta overnight with visibilities at times near zero. Along with the fog, areas of drizzle have developed and in some regions where temperatures have dropped below zero, freezing drizzle is occurring. Travel will be affected due to the near-zero visibilities and slippery road conditions. The widespread fog and drizzle will continue through to late this morning for most of central Alberta, and into the early afternoon for regions in east-central Alberta.
Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. Fog advisories are issued when near zero visibilities in fog are expected or occurring. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
