Pea soup anyone?

After waking to the sound of fog horns today, it’s now the middle of the afternoon and warning blasts still echo around Wellington as ships come and go…

Wellington Harbour fogThe fog has finally cleared over the land and from the south coast, but the harbour basin has made a nice little fog trap!

This photo (and another in the album) were snapped from the back of our place just before 3pm.

And here’s the view of the fog late morning from space!

The image is another superb example from the NASA MODIS Rapid Response System – taken at 10:05am this morning. As you can see Lake Wairarapa was also covered in fog, which appears to be flowing out into Palliser Bay.
