Fog warning of yellow

Yellow warning of fog

Be aware

16:00 on Monday until 06:00 on Tuesday

Fog is expected to thicken across parts of northwest England, the northwest Midlands and northeast Wales quickly on Monday evening. Slower journey times are likely with some delays to bus and train services possible. Some delays and cancellations to flights are also possible.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Patchy fog over parts of northwest England, the northwest Midlands and northeast Wales is expected to thicken up this evening as the sun goes down. This may lead to visibilities falling below 100 m in places. During the night the fog may start to lift into low cloud but this may be a slow process with some patches perhaps lingering throughout the night.
