Brisbane has woken up to a particularly hazy morning, with foggy skies descending upon the city. And no, this isn't just your usual early-hour gloom, with the conditions reducing road visibility around town.

Heading out of the house on this murky Wednesday morning? Can't spend the day working from home? If either applies, then you'd best prepare for a longer journey than normal — and to be as careful as possible if you're driving. The latter is just common sense all the time, of course, but the Bureau of Meteorology has issued a road alert warning this morning due to the blanket of fog.

BOM's alert is brief, simply stating: "reduced visibility in fog will make road conditions dangerous during Wednesday morning in the Brisbane area." If you've peeked out of your window already this morning, or you've already ventured out, you'll likely have seen exactly why the warning has been issued.

Even if you're not heading far — or you're walking or cycling — it goes without saying that you should take caution on and near the road this morning given that visibility is low.

BOM is due to update its alert by 11am, on what could be another slightly wet day for Brisbane. As well as being partly cloudy, Brissie has a 40-percent likelihood of late showers today, and there's also the possibility of a thunderstorm in the west. Temperature wise, a top of 24 degrees is expected.
