"That’s some seriously thick #fog this morning."

Vancouverites have seen a range of tempestuous weather in recent weeks — but a peaceful fog has blanketed the city over the past couple of days. 

Last week, Metro Vancouver saw its earliest snowfall in three decades following a powerful windstorm that felled upwards of 400 trees. And it looks like there's another opportunity for snow later this week as temperatures dip below the freezing level.

Environment Canada has issued a fog advisory for Metro Vancouver as a ridge of high pressure has trapped moist air near the surface creating near-zero visibility in the thick fog.

Drivers are reminded to slow down and watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. However, the thick fog is expected to dissipate later this afternoon. 

Locals have taken to social media to share photos of the rare weather event, including some spellbinding perspectives of the fog rolling in over the water or of near-zero visibility at street level. 

Have a look at some of the images from the past couple of days in the Lower Mainland.
