Widespread fog blankets QueenslandKim Westcott, Saturday July 5, 2014 - 14:17 EST
The night owls and early birds around parts of Brisbane, Wide Bay, Capricornia and Darling Downs would have noticed the thick blanket of fog this morning.
The fog at Maryborough and Rockhampton brought visibility down to as low as 100 metres this morning. Oakey, Archerfield, Hervey Bay and Amberley all recorded visibility as low as 200 metres. The fog lifted shortly after 7 am in most places, as the air began to dry out.
Clear skies, light winds and lingering moisture from a low pressure trough over central and eastern Queensland yesterday created the perfect conditions for the fog to form.
Today, a high will redevelop over the state today bringing nice sunny days to a majority of the state, with areas of fog and frost likely for the next few mornings under the clear skies.
