Near-zero visibility is being reported in parts of the Parkland Thursday morning, as the region is under a fog advisory.

Environment Canada says the combination of clear skies, light winds and melting snow created ideal conditions for fog development overnight.

Widespread reports of drastically reduced visibility is prompting reminders to be extra careful on the roads this morning, and to use a safe following distance.

The fog is expected to dissipate toward midday but will likely develop over the region tonight into Friday morning.
