Fog in late August (courtesy of Aidan Mitchell)
Fog from the moisture laden onshore air drifts on to the land when the overnight temperatures are still low.
The fog appears when the humidity is approaching 100% and the dust, smoke and sea mist particles in the air give the moisture something to cling to.
After sunrise the swirling thermals and light breezes cause the fog to thicken and close in even more.
In the early evenings, irrigated playing fields attract fog because they are cool and damp. The fog appears like magic forming a think veneer as teams play sport under lights.
Fog signals a change in season from Barrgana dominate by cool, dry south easterlies to Wilburu a short warming up period when the on shore winds return.
