Sunday off to gloomy start in SA, VIC, NSW

Brett Dutschke, Saturday May 5, 2018 - 17:13 AEST

Parts of South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales will start Sunday in a gloomy way, a result of low cloud and fog.

The low cloud and fog will develop in the coolest, calmest areas with the highest humidity, most likely the sheltered parts of the slopes and ranges. The humidity will largely be due to recent rain and moist sea breezes.

Now that a high pressure system is moving in behind a rain-bearing trough and cold front, skies are beginning to clear, enhancing the overnight cooling. And this cooling will cause the moisture in the air to condense into the low cloud and fog.

While capital cities should not be significantly affected, some of the main candidates are the Clare, Nuriootpa, Padthaway, Loxton, Charlton, Shepparton, Wangaratta, Rutherglen, Albury and Goulburn areas.

As a result of the gloomy cloud and fog, visibility will be low in some areas but residents shouldn't have to wait long for brightening skies to take over, by about 8am in most places.

As the high edges east, the favoured low-cloud-and-fog area in southeastern Australia will shift to the Central Tablelands, western Sydney and inland Hunter of NSW.
