Hey, who stole Brisbane?

Anthony Sharwood, Wednesday June 16, 2021 - 10:00 EST

Brisbane and large parts of eastern Queensland have woken up feeling foggier than a Qld State of Origin player after last week's 50-6 loss to New South Wales.

The dense fog was caused by the combination of cool overnight temperatures, light winds, and residual moisture after storms earlier this week.

Everyone from regular Brissy folk to the woman with the state's top job joined in on fog-watch.

As ever, the best shots were from Mt Coot-tha, the 302m summit which is the highest point in the Brisbane metro area.

The city looked pretty amazing from even higher up, with just the tips of the CBD's tallest towers poking through.

And the spectacle wasn't too bad from a whole lot higher up still.

With the fog having cleared, Brisbane is in for a partly cloudy day with a pleasant enough top temp for June of 24ºC.

There could be a shower or two later in the day, and cooler air will move in from the south by Friday, with top temps around the 21ºC mark through the weekend - which is pretty much the June average.
