Heavy fog blankets areas from Ipswich to Toowoomba


Ipswich and surrounding areas are covered in heavy fog this morning making the commute to work a little more hazardous.
 Forecaster James Thompson from the Weather Bureau says the fog started to come through in the Ipswich area at just after midnight.
 " It's largely due to  a little bit of humidity hovering with those warmer ocean temperatures after Summer months as well as  a combination of clear skies and a relatively clear morning" he says.
Mr Thompson says fog is likely to stay around for a while yet but is expected to burn off once the sun gets up.
The fog is currently affecting Ipswich, Lockyer Valley, Brisbane Valley and Toowoomba areas this morning.
