It was 8.40am, looking out over the Hunter River the visibility had dropped even further as a thin sleet overtook the impact of the fog - winter has well and truly arrived in Maitland.
When I took these photographs the temperature had just inched its way up to 7C but somehow felt every bit as cold as the morning low of 3.8C.
Tuesday morning's minimum was just 0.3 degrees higher than the month's low, recorded on Sunday, June 7 and we're in for more chilly starts going into July, although disappointingly the chance of rain is low.
A top of 18 today is to be followed by an overnight low of 5C. The majority of the afternoon will be a sunny 15-18 but spare a thought for the players returning to footy training as the temperature rapidly drops post sunset.
Looking ahead, tomorrow will start with fog but become sunny with a low of 5C and top of 21C.
Thursday offers the best chance of rain (40 per cent). It will be predominantly sunny with a minimum of 9C and maximum of 22C.
The outlook for Friday is mostly sunny 11-20, Saturday mostly sunny 6-18 and Sunday sunny 5-18.
