South-east wakes up a little foggy

IPSWICH was blanketed by a massive layer of fog which covered most of inland south-east Queensland yesterday.

Moist surface air was trapped close to the ground by a dry air further up in the atmosphere to create the thick, smoky blanket, which didn't clear until about 9am.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Michelle Berry said the cold start to yesterday morning - about 1.4 degrees at Amberley - warmed to a beautiful 23.

"The same conditions are not likely for Friday, as we've got a trough from the west that will bring some cloud and the possibility of patchy light rain," she said.

Cold south-westerly winds were predicted behind the trough, bringing colder temperatures and the possibility of frosts on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
