Sydney's Lingering Weekend Fog Is Causing Reduced Road Visibility and Flight Delays

Sydney is in the middle of a particularly hazy weekend, with foggy skies descending upon the city. For the second day running, the gloomy conditions are reducing visibility on roads around town and causing dramas for those departing from the airport — so if you're venturing out of the house on this murky Sunday morning, prepare for a longer journey than normal.

The heavy mist has disrupted flights going out of Sydney Airport, with the facility advising travellers to keep in contact with their carriers about delays. Yesterday, according to news.com.au, more than 40 domestic flights and eight international flights were waylaid due to the fog.

Even if you're not heading to the airport, it goes without saying that you should take caution on and near the road this morning as visibility is low. The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a road weather alert, noting that "reduced visibility in fog will make road conditions dangerous during Sunday morning in most suburbs".

Weatherzone advises that the fog is due to linger past 9am, then return this evening. Once the skies do clear today, Sydneysiders can expect partly cloudy conditions with a slight chance of a shower. More cloud is forecast for tomorrow, as well as showers in the late morning and afternoon.
