Two international flights were diverted.

A China Southern flight from Guangzhou due at 6am was diverted to Christchurch and finally landed in Auckland at 12.46pm.

A private plane from Melbourne was diverted to Wellington.

Although the fog was expected to lift, parts of Auckland were still shrouded in it.

"There's a lot of low-level moisture," Metservice duty forecaster Philippa Murdoch said

"We've had a lot of cool temperature and light winds condense to fogs."

The fog was expected to completely clear this afternoon.

The fog also delayed ferry services on the Waitemata Harbour.
