Fog along east coast/Dublin 10/07/2022

    Hi all,

    Would anyone know the meteorological reason for the heavy fog that occured this afternoon along the coast of Dublin.

    Came in around 1pm, very think fog, seemed to be coming in from the sea. Did not have any smoke like smell or anything like that.

    The wind seemed to onshore, and it was a really warm day so I'm guessing the land temperature was higher than the sea temp. That should rule out advection fog.

    Any ideas from the more seasoned meteorologists on here?

    Hmmmm I'm no expert! Could totally be wrong.

    But if the wind was onshore and the sea temp was lower than the land, would that not make advection unlikely in this case?

    Could see it rolling in over Donabate Beach. Lucky we live inland a small bit so was just affecting us slightly but was guessing anyone visiting the beach must have been cursing their decision. Saw some pics on Twitter then and looked cold!

    That's a really good animation, thanks for sharing!

    It looks in that animation like the fog or the air carrying the fog originates over there Irish sea before drifting west to the Irish coast in the early afternoon. Could the warm moist air have originated over the sea and cooled as it moved to a part of the sea near with colder surface temperature?
