Environment Canada issued yet another fog advisory for Greater Victoria Friday morning, topping off a week of low-visibility conditions.

The weather agency says dense fog redeveloped throughout the region overnight and is expected to stick around in patches until noon.

In addition, Environment Canada is also warning of localized black ice Friday morning.

“If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop,” it says.

Fog advisories are also in effect across much of the rest of Vancouver Island, including inland and east areas, the southern Gulf Islands, and the Malahat highway. Near Campbell River and Powell River, the fog will continue through Friday night.
