Temperatures expected to hit 18C after ‘graveyard’ fog blanketed Toronto

Temperatures are expected to hit a balmy high of 18 Celsius on Tuesday after an eerie fog blanketed the city in the morning.

Jerald Chen, meteorologist at Environment and Climate Change Canada, said the “graveyard” fog was due to light winds, clear skies and the air cooled to the dew point — the temperature in which the air cannot hold any more moisture or water — so it becomes vapor.

Toronto was not the only one obscured by fog. Chen said the fog covered parts of York Region and as far west as London, Ont., and Windsor.

“The fog will be short lived once the sun burns it off around noon,” Chen said.

Temperatures will reach a high of 18 C, before dipping down to a low of 6 C at night. There is also a 30 per cent chance of showers Tuesday night and after midnight.

Trick or treaters are keeping a close eye on the forecast for Halloween. Environment Canada is calling for periods of rain on Thursday.
