UK weather forecast: Fog across England threatens travel chaos as warning extended

 

The Met Office has issued a new freezing fog warning as plunging temperatures threaten to cause further travel chaos for drivers and commuters.

Forecasters say fog and freezing fog will “persist and become more widespread” across a swathe of England from Monday evening and into Tuesday morning.

A yellow warning has been issued for a large area that stretches from Lincolnshire down through to Devon and includes London.

Drivers have been told to expect “difficult” conditions on the roads and “disruption” including delays.

For those still flying domestically or abroad during the Covid-19 pandemic, there is a chance of delays or cancellations to flights

The warning will be in effect from 4pm on Monday to 11am on Tuesday.

The warning area and times could change.

Fog has posed a problem for drivers in recent days, including Monday morning when an earlier warning was in effect, and some places have seen their first snowfall of the season as temperatures plunged to as low as -10C in the UK.

Parts of the country have been colder than Finland.

The Met Office said: “Fog and freezing fog will persist and become more widespread Monday evening, lasting into Tuesday morning.

“The visibility is likely to be less than 100 metres (490 feet) in places leading to difficult driving conditions and some disruption to transport.

“The odd icy stretch is also possible.”

It said journey times could be slower and there could be delays to bus and train services.
