PHOTOS (13): A rare 3pm sight in Auckland


Parts of Auckland remain under foggy, drizzly, conditions this afternoon with fog barely even lifting for those in West Auckland. 

Residents woke to foggy conditions in Waitakere City and even mid and late this afternoon the fog remained near sea level.

Foggy conditions continue to sweep across the harbours covering Sky Tower, the Harbour Bridge and suburbs across Auckland, mostly 30 metres above sea level.

As of 3:55pm humidity remained at 100% with a gentle north easterly breeze.  Conditions are mostly dry but light rain will set in this evening, becoming heavier overnight.

Maybe if youre standing on top of the SkyTower with the fog below! :o)

Talking of fog, Friday was weird in Maraetai as I couldnt see Waiheke Island at all…. on the top of the hill I was above the fog and could see it coming across to Maraetai from Waiheke, I wish I had my camera with me as it was great to see it rolling in over the water. Ten minutes later and it came up the street and then it was gone.
