An unusual weather system blanketed much of the North Shore in a cool, eerie fog for a record number of days this week.
The dense fog bank thatâ€™s recently given a horror-movie cast to some familiar landmarks had been hanging around the south coast for eight days by Thursday â€” breaking the previous record for fog in October.
â€œThis fog bank has just been really stubborn and persistent,â€ said Matt MacDonald, a meteorologist at Environment Canada.
MacDonald said itâ€™s possible the fog could hang around until the weekend.
The thick fog has been caused by a ridge of high pressure â€” which usually brings warm sunny weather â€” essentially trapping stagnant layers of moisture-saturated air in low lying areas for the past week.
