All day fog for Waikato over Thursday, morning fog for Auckland (+Photos & Video)

Fog as far as the eye can see….not sure if that really makes sense, but thick fog and low cloud continues to blanket Waikato as we head into the last part of the afternoon.

With just a couple of hours until sunset, fog is still pea soup over parts of Waikato under high pressure and no wind.

It took until afternoon for fog to clear some parts of Auckland Harbour too after a patchy start this morning. Some areas were clear and sunny while others had thick fog – as is the nature of Auckland sometimes due to the hilly suburbs and coastal inlets.

There were fog patches nationwide this morning, with some in Southland recording a heavy frost then fog making for a very cold start to the day.

Here’s the latest satellite image, courtesy of the Japanese Meteorological Agency. The area in red is fog/low cloud as of 2:50pm.

There may be a few fog patches on Friday but generally speaking northerly quarter winds are kicking in on Friday and that will clear any possible fog.
