Bundy records thickest fog in more than a year

FOG was so thick in the Bundaberg region this morning it dripped like rain as the region recorded its thickest fog is more than a year.

Weatherzone meterologist Brett Dutschke confirmed the record fog across the region.

"Visibility did get as low as less than 50 metres for several hours this morning, between about 3 and 5am," Mr Dutschke said.

"It's the thickest fog in over a year.

"At 6am this morning, visibility was still only 100 metres."

Mr Dutschke said the heavy fog recorded across the region today was an indication of how humid it had been.

"There's been several days of sea breezes bringing in a bit more humidity each day," he said.

"And then last night was one of the coolest nights we'd had lately.

"As that humid air cools down it forms to fog."

Mr Dutschke said it was possible the fog was thicker in Bargara and coastal areas than the town reach.

"In town, it may not have been as cold, that moisture may not have had the chance to condense into fog as much," he said.

"That can be one of the reasons for the variations in fog in the area."

But despite the thick fog recorded today, Mr Dutschke said there was "very little chance" of fog returning to the region again this week.
