A fog advisory issued early Monday for Edmonton and areas to the east of the city was lifted around 10:30 a.m.

Environment Canada had said an extensive area of fog around the Edmonton metro region and eastward toward Lloydminster had formed, and it was expected to reduce visibility at times to near zero.

The dense fog was expected to continue until late Monday morning. As the sun rose in Edmonton a light haze could be seen over the city, but not the dense fog the national weather agency said could occur.

There were reports of thicker fog northeast of Edmonton.
