Fog rolls in across the Hunter for mix of wet and sunny weather ahead

EARLY risers were met with a city cloaked in fog on Tuesday morning.

The white blanket enveloped most of the city and made for an eerie start to the day.

The wet weather that lashed the Hunter over the weekend isn’t over yet, with a mix of showers and sunny days forecast for the next week. 

The Bureau of Meterology has predicted a 30 per cent chance of rain and temperatures between seven and 19 degrees on Tuesday for Newcastle.

The wet weekend hit as many remembered the wild storm that sent the Pasha Bulker aground during a deadly east coast low on June 8, 2007.
