"It is all on track now, things are returning to normal, all flights are taking off as planned," the spokeswoman said after the fog lifted.

A BOM spokeswoman said the Sydney basin was cleared of fog, but low cloud cover could still affect elevated highways in other parts of NSW.

"Fog has cleared from most of the suburbs now, but there might still be some haze or patchy fog," meteorologist Katarina Kovacevis said.

On average, Sydney Airport experiences five fog events per year and most of them happen in late autumn or winter, she said.

"It is the season for it," she said.

"There's a chance of fog again tomorrow in the Sydney basin."
