The sun will shine today

Foggy morning

A foggy morning

A slow moving high pressure system is over the South Island. Most mornings we wake up to thick fog which begins to lift around 10:00 or 11:00 am.

This morning the fog didn’t start to lift until after 11:00.

It’s hard to believe this blue sky was sitting above the fog blanket. This has been the pattern for several days and is forecast to continue. These photos were taken from our back porch looking down the river.

It is now 8:15 pm and the full moon is shining but the fog will roll in before midnight.

    They are great pictures. You said the fog will roll in. Does the fog occur most of the nights in the winter? Also, I know nothing, absolutely nothing about blogs, so will your reply come via an email or will it be posted on your blog. Or do I get no response.

      Hi Sam,
      The fog rolls in on warmer nights, on cold nights (at, near or below freezing) the sky is usually so clear you can see the Milky Way. In the morning the ground can be so white it looks like it has snowed but it is white from frost. A day that follows a frost is usually sunny.
