AS BEACHGOERS attempted to sun themselves on Friday a thick fog crept towards shore, engulfing much of Newcastle. The eerie sight was caused by sea fog, according to Ashleigh Lange from the Bureau of Meteorology.
“We had pretty warm, moist air over cooling ocean temperatures creating the fog,” she said.
“It can last well into the afternoon, drift out to sea and come back again. It can come in waves.”
The daytime fog made for a strange sight on the coastline where temperatures reached 30 degrees Celsius in Newcastle.
There is a chance of more fog on the weekend and a slight chance of showers.
The forecast for Newcastle is 33 on Saturday and a cooler 28 Sunday as the region gets a southerly change.
