Newsbits

 Fog comes with continuing stable weather in Australia: The high pressure ridge that has dominated Australian weather charts for around three weeks continues to produce cold, frosty nights and mostly sunny days. However, a weak southerly change that moved across the southeast over the weekend injected additional moisture that produced little rain but encouraged widespread fog overnight, with a number of places in SE QLD, inland NSW, northern and western VIC and much of southern SA, including Adelaide, reporting visibility down to 50 or 100m. In TAS, the change gave a measly 0.2mm in the Hobart City gauge, ending a record-breaking June dry spell of 17 days.

 Fog follows stormy weather in NZ: The same high pressure ridge pushed across New Zealand on Friday after a series of fronts gave several days of wild weather to the South Island. There was heavy rain on the west coast, snow fell as low as 300m in the far south, wind gusted to 139km/h at Le Bons Bay on the Banks Peninsula east of Christchurch, and a swell, with a maximum wave height of 16m off Banks Peninsula, brought rough seas to the east coasts of both islands on Wednesday, cancelling Cook Strait ferries. As the high ridged across the country, it trapped moisture under an inversion causing fog on Saturday and Sunday mornings, disrupting air traffic at Auckland Airport. Fog there did not lift until early Saturday afternoon, and on Saturday night and Sunday morning caused flight cancellations as well as delays. [Radio NZ, Metservice]
