Adelaide was shrouded in thick fog this morning, delaying flights and making for a difficult commute to work.
Clear skies and light winds last night in the wake of a cold front caused temperatures to cool enough, allowing thick fog to develop shortly after 5am.
Adelaide is prone to fog in the winter months, although this morning's lasted longer than usual due to abundant moisture in the air and light to moderate winds.
Visibility was still reduced to 400 metres at 9:30am at the airport and dropped as low as 150 metres in Elizabeth.
At one stage, conditions looked like clearing as winds increased around sunrise, although fog thickened again at just after 8:30am.
The lack of visibility this morning prompted a Road Weather Alert in Adelaide and caused delays to air traffic.
A slight increase in winds allowed visibility to climb above 1500m after 10am, although mist lingered in the city for the remainder of the morning.
