RESIDENTS rolled out of bed and rubbed their eyes this morning to find the town under a thick blanket of fog, and it turns out we were the only ones in Queensland to experience the haze.

A thick, low blanket of cloud hung over the town, causing drivers to squint and strain on their morning commute.

A meteorologist from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology said the fog was isolated to the upper Condamine Valley.

"It's quite interesting, the conditions in that area have been just right," David Crock said.

The basic ingredients for fog are light winds and clear skies so the ground and air can cool off enough to reach saturation.

But the eerie effect of fog has local police asking residents to exercise caution when travelling on roads.

Signs around town warn drivers that "winter is coming" and to switch their fog lights on when cloud is about.

Warwick is in for a cool weekend, with temperatures to reach a top of 22 today and 23 tomorrow.

Mornings will cool off to as low as three degrees.
