Brisbane shrouded in fog after heavy rain

Southeast Queensland could be hit by hail on Wednesday after a foggy start to the day for Brisbane.

Brisbane has woken to its second day in a row of heavy fog, with the River City shrouded by low, grey cloud following heavy storm activity overnight that dumped 52mm in an hour in Logan, south of the city.

Heavy fog covered large parts of southeast Queensland and northern NSW on Tuesday, with many of the same areas impacted on Wednesday.

Authorities are once again urging drivers to take care after several serious crashes on Tuesday.

Meteorologists say the atmosphere will be unstable on Wednesday, with heavy rainfall and thunderstorms expected to roll in during the day.

At 6.50am, the Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe weather warning for severe thunderstorms for people in parts of Somerset, Western Downs, Toowoomba and Lockyer Valley council areas.

“Large hail and/or large accumulations of small hail possible,” the warning read.

“At 6.50am severe thunderstorms were detected on the weather radar near the area north of Toowoomba and Macalister. These thunderstorms are moving towards the east.

“They are forecast to affect Dalby and Crows Nest by 7.20am and Esk by 7.50am.”
