Early morning fog covered the city this morning causing delays of three-quarters of an hour at Brisbane airport.

The fog – which blanketed areas from Ipswich to the city’s north-east – comes after last night’s thunderstorms and overnight winds which maintained moisture levels.

Amy Hutchinson reports.

Commuters this morning drove through blankets of thick fog.

In parts, visibility was less than one hundred metres in the south-east corner.

Eventually skies cleared and the day became a little warmer, at twenty five degrees – but we’ll soon be reaching for our winter coats.

The Bureau of Meteorology says we should expect it to get much colder in the next few days.

And in a sign of things to come… snow has descended on Victoria’s Mt Hotham and Falls Creek.

Hotham recording a low of minus five.

Ski enthusiasts will be pleased to know the ski-friendly levels of snow are predicted from mid June with the heaviest falls expected to happen in July.
