A thick, heavy fog poured into Queens on Wednesday morning, surprising many residents and commuters who wondered if they had woken up in London or San Francisco.

The dense fog, which began in the northern suburbs, rolled down the Hudson River and enveloped the city before sunrise Wednesday, dropping visibilities to, in some cases, near zero.

The fog caused drivers to slow down on roads all over Queens including on Cross Bay Boulevard, seen here looking north from Sutter Avenue in Ozone Park at about 9:30 a.m.

By early afternoon, the sun had burned the fog off, bringing clear, sunny skies.

Welcome to the discussion.
