The incredible image behind another day of travel delays in Aussie city

·2-min read

A thick blanket of fog covering Brisbane caused road and airport delays on Thursday morning, with the Bureau of Meteorology describing conditions as "dangerous".

Brisbane residents woke to a skyline completely lost in the clouds.

The conditions were best captured by traffic reporter Dave Andrews who shared an incredible video from above on Twitter, where the top of the city's buildings were just seen poking out of the fog.

"Reduced visibility in fog will make road conditions dangerous during Thursday morning in the Brisbane Area," the Bureau of Meteorology warned people.

Queensland Police also urged people to drive with caution in the morning due to the conditions.

Images taken on the road showed just how much visibility was impaired this morning due to the conditions, with one person suggesting people keep their lights on.

Brisbane's Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said the city's ferry and CityCat services were still operating this morning.

"Albeit a little slower due to the foggy conditions," he said on Twitter.

The fog did cause some minor delays at Brisbane Airport, a spokesperson confirmed to ABC. However, there were no flight diversions.

Similar scenes were seen earlier in the week, with the fog on Tuesday also prompting a warning from the BoM.

It's expected to be 24 degrees and sunny for the rest of the day in Brisbane and partly cloudy and 27 on Friday.

Brisbane and Darwin are the only Australian capitals not expecting rain on Thursday.

Earlier this week the Bureau announced the presence of a negative Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD), meaning eastern parts of the country should expect more rain in the coming months.

More rain, after several freak weather events earlier this year leaving the soil wet, rivers high and dams full means there is an elevated flood risk for eastern Australia, BoM's head of long-range forecasting Dr Andrew Watkins said.
