PERTH has had a (very) early taste of winter after the city awoke to find itself shrouded in fog this morning.
Despite the forecast of a sunny weekend, the fog rolled in this morning and is causing some issues on the road, particularly to Perth’s south.
It’s foggy out there this morning and the roads are slippery.
Leave early allowing plenty of travel time to get to your destination, be aware of your surroundings, and illuminate your headlights. #Patience #ArriveAlive #TEG1PEEL pic.twitter.com/ZQ3Qvhj6GF

The reduced visibility has forced Main Roads to issue a warning for commuters on the Kwinana Freeway from Thomas Rd in Anketell to Pinjarra Rd.
They have also issued the fog warning between Lakes Road in Mandurah and Mortimer Road in Wellard.
