Fog blankets Bundaberg and beyond

THE thick layer of fog that blanketed the outskirts of Bundaberg yesterday and stretched to Bargara is expected to shroud the region again this morning.

Weatherzone meteorologist Rob Sharpe said the fog was the result of an excess of moisture in the air.

"There's a good chance of fog forming again with light winds," he said.

He said there was a light southerly wind bringing moisture in from further south.

"This allowed the temperature to drop to the dew point."

The temperature this morning was 15.8 degrees.

He said the fog broke up around 8am before turning to mist and disappearing by 9am as the temperature heated up.

Bundaberg Police sergeant Mike Brown said it was important that people drove to the conditions in foggy areas.

"Put your lights on and slow down," he said.

"Don't use high beams as it reflects the fog back at you."

He said people should use their low beam if they didn't have fog lights.

"You just drive to the conditions, they may not enable you to reach the speed limit," he said.
