AFTER relatively clear skies this June, dense fog started forming this week in the Gladstone region.

A series of troughs over the past few days and light winds contributed to the increase.

Nicholas Taco Henry commented on The Observer's Facebook page that driving into Gladstone from Ambrose with thick fog for the past two mornings had been a struggle.

Kirsty Jayne Webb said fog didn't clear in Boyne Island until after 8am on Monday.

Linda Williams said that in west Stowe the fog hadn't cleared until after 9am for the past two days.

There is relief for residents, as Rockhampton's Bureau of Meteorology weather observer Brendan Bradford said there should be less fog from Wednesday.

Winds will be south to south-easterly and light on Wednesday, increasing to 15 to 20 km/h during the afternoon then becoming light during the evening.

Mr Bradford said residents can also expect fine conditions, blue skies and that temperature-wise things are expected to cool off from Wednesday.

After daytime temperatures of 25 to 26 degrees Celsius for the past few days, overnight temperatures will fall to between 4 and 11 with daytime temperatures reaching the low 20s.

In the south-west of the Capricornia region areas of morning frost are expected over the next few days, with the temperature in areas like Biloela going down to single figures.
