The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning that fog will hit the UK within hours which could cause travel chaos for drivers.

The weather warning is in effect from 5pm on Thursday until 11am on Friday morning with visibility falling to “below 100m in places.”

In a statement, the Met Office said, “Fog patches will reform during Thursday afternoon, particularly in river valleys and near lakes, and may become locally dense during the evening with visibility below 100m in places.

“Fog is expected to become more widespread overnight and after dawn on Friday morning with further dense patches, before slowly clearing.

“However, a few patches may persist into the afternoon.”

Renee Duff, Meteorologist II, Forecasting for Accuweather, told Express.co.uk, “The weather through the upcoming week will remain rather tranquil with an area of high pressure keeping much of the region free of rain.

“So, travellers will not have to face any hazards related to wet roads, though there will be areas of fog at times during the morning hours into next week.

“It’s been a mild start to 2022 for much of the region, and it does look like temperatures will be on an up-and-down trend through next week.

“Friday, Jan. 14, will be the coldest day of the week across the United Kingdom, with highs only topping out around 6 C in London and Cambridge, and 4 C in Oxford and Ipswich.

“It will trend milder again over the weekend and into early next week, with London’s high climbing near 9-10 C by Sunday and Monday.

“There will be some cooling once again toward the middle part of next week, but it looks like temperatures will actually remain a couple degrees above average across the region for much of the week with no bitter cold on the way.”
