Scene: The Weather Turns Ghostly on Lake Ontario

Fog-made wraiths haunted our waterfront this morning.

WHERE: Humber Bay Park West

WHEN: Tuesday, January 7, 6–8:30 a.m.

WHAT: When cold air travels over a warmer body of water, the warmer air above the water is cooled, producing a fog known as “sea smoke,” which can take the form of large columns. We’ve certainly been treated to some cold air, and Toronto’s home to a sizeable body of water, so this morning, early risers were greeted by the sight of what looked like ghostly clouds of smoke. This isn’t the first time our cold weather has given rise to haunting, unreal shapes: last year, we also featured shots of our fog-transformed lake.
