The dense fog advisory for most of East Central Illinois has been extended until 4 p.m. Sunday.

Over 150 flights have been cancelled as heavy fog has settled over parts of Chicago, according to the Department of Aviation.

Environment Canada says dense fog patches have caused "near zero visibility" in some areas.

Drivers should use caution while traveling on foggy roadways and "be prepared to encounter rapidly changing visibility", the weather service said.

The fog set in late Sunday and isn't expected to dissipate until overnight Monday, thanks to warm air moving over the region.

A significant freezing rain even is also expected for some areas including Caledon and Dufferin County.

Temperatures will rise further into Tuesday, with an expected high of 5 C.
