Fog brought an eerie grey feel to the morning across inland NSW.
Winds were still - a stark contrast to last week's howler - bringing a peace and quiet to the morning.
These calm conditions, combined with night-time cooling and lingering moisture allowed fog to form.
Albury airport had its visibility reduced to 500 metre, the second foggy morning in a row. Fog was also reported in Cooma, Ballina, Grafton, Lismore, Yass and Sydney's Liverpool.
The spring sunshine is warm enough in the morning to quickly burn away greyness thus bringing a glorious sunny day. By 9am this morning most fog had cleared the region.
NSW's South Coast and Illawarra residents were waking up to their first rainfall of the month. A weak southerly change is spreading mid-level cloud across eastern NSW and bringing some light coastal drizzle. The headland stations of Ulladulla and Point Perpendicular both saw a measly point two of a millimetre, their first rainfall of the month nonetheless.
Skies will clear across NSW later today when warm northerly winds will build. Wednesday will be warm: Sydney can look forward to a mid-week top in the mid-twenties ahead of a strong cold front. This front will bring showers to the city on Thursday afternoon with a chilly and fresh southerly wind change.
