Beautiful Fog Bank Blankets Lafayette, California

This morning Lafayette, California awoke to a relatively rare sight; a beautiful bank of dense fog entirely blanketing the city.

The Bay Area Telegraph observed the dog bank from Happy Valley Road. The dense fog appeared to extend from the Orinda border through downtown.

On Lafayette’s streets in the early morning, temperatures were chilly and visibility was reduced by the soupy, ground level fog.

Fog banks are a routine occurrence on the other side of the tunnel in Berkeley and Oakland. But on this side, fog from the Bay rarely makes it over the Berkeley Hills to blanket Lamorinda.

The fog is likely to burn off as the sun rises later in the morning, but for now, Lamorinda is being treated to a lovely sight normally seen only in San Francisco and bigger East Bay cities.
