A fog warning is in place overnight and into Friday The full warning from the Met Office says: “Fog will develop and become quite widespread overnight. It is likely to be dense in places and may lead to some travel disruption and delays. “Fog will be slow to clear during Friday morning and may persist for much of the day in places.” The warning is rated as medium likelihood and low impact on the Met Office Warning impact matrix which is why it is a yellow warning. Motorists are warned to be cautious while the fog warning is in place. Warnings of dense fog are issued when visibility is expected to fall below 200 metres. Severe disruption to transport occurs when the visibility falls below 50 metres. Met Office advice for road users when travelling in fog: Avoid travel if possible Drive very slowly with dipped headlights, full-beam lights reflect off the fog causing a 'white wall' effect Keep an eye on your speed, fog can give the illusion of moving in slow motion Use fog lights, but remember to turn them off when the visibility improves Don't hang on the tail lights of the car in front, rear lights can give a false sense of security Watch out for freezing fog which is made of water droplets that freeze on contact with objects such as the pavement, road, car, etc. It can quickly form a layer of ice.
