[PHOTO] Four photos looking south from the top of the Art Gallery of Ontario

Friday was a foggy and misty day in Toronto, cloud softening skylines. I thought the weather entirely appropriate for my outing to catch Impressionism in the Age of Industry, actually, what with how works in that genre so often featured fogs and mists.

[PHOTO] Three photos from the Wallace Avenue Bridge on a foggy evening

Last night I was walking west on the Wallace Avenue footbridge, at around 11 o’clock, when I took note of the warm glowing fog underneath. A Union-Pearson Express car passed under me between the second and third photos, and is still visible in the third.

[PHOTO] Financial District under winter fog, from Church and Richmond

It was cold and wet yesterday, but not so cold that fog could not shroud the tips of the tallest towers in the Financial District. The northwest corner of Church and Richmond was a perfect vantage point for this scene.

[PHOTO] Empire State Building disappearing into fog

On the afternoon of Friday the 12th of January, 2018, anyone looking up at the top of the Empire State Building from a street-level position on West 34th Street just to its north would have seen the upper levels disappear into fog.

[URBAN NOTE] “Fog advisory in place for Toronto with near zero visibility in some areas”

CBC News notes the dense fog prevailing outside, not just in Toronto but in the wider Greater Toronto Area. The description of its density is entirely accurate.

Environment Canada has issued a fog advisory for Toronto, with a warning to drivers that visibility will be near zero in some areas.

The fog is expected to continue early Wednesday morning, and in some locations, it could last until noon.

Environment Canada said its fog advisory also applies to surrounding areas, including Peel, York, Durham and Halton Regions. Visibility will improve by mid morning as the fog dissipates.

Drivers should expect dense fog in some areas.

“Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero,” the federal agency said in its advisory.

“Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility.”
