Fog warning of yellow

Yellow warning of fog

Be aware

Valid from 19:00 on Monday until 10:00 on Tuesday

Patchy fog is expected to form soon after dark on Monday across many parts of southern and central England, East Anglia and east Wales. The fog is expected to become quite widespread and locally dense and freezing during the evening with visibility reducing to less than 100 metres in places. The fog is likely to persist into Tuesday morning's rush hour across a swathe from east Wales across the Midlands into parts of East Anglia. However, it may well begin to disperse across southern England by this time, as cloud starts to increase from the south. The public should be aware that disruption to transport is possible. In view of the uncertainty surrounding amounts of fog southern England by morning, this warning may be updated.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

With light winds and clear skies across southern Britain this evening, as well as wet ground (following recent heavy rain), quickly falling temperatures are likely to lead to formation of fog patches. Once formed these are likely to persist overnight into Tuesday morning. However, a front moving northwards across the English Channel may introduce sufficient cloud and breeze to disperse the fog across southern England towards morning. However this aspect is uncertain and so the warning will be kept under review.
