Fog advisory extended, no flights canceled

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A dense fog advisory was extended about an hour Saturday morning in the Chicago area but has not yet caused flight cancelations at O’Hare and Midway airports.

The National Weather Service issued a special weather statement for dense fog Friday night, which originally lasted through 9 a.m. Saturday.

The advisory was extended about 8 a.m. Saturday to last through at least 10:15 a.m for Cook, DuPage and Kane counties. The fog will reduce visibility to less than a quarter of a mile in certain spots, the weather service said.

The fog will begin to ease up between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. but might stick around through the afternoon, especially around areas near Lake Michigan, the weather service said.

All flights were operating normally as of 8:15 a.m. Saturday at both O’Hare and Midway, according to the city’s Department of Aviation. On Friday night, the department had reported 170 flight cancelations and delays at both airports due to low visibility from the fog.
