Weather warning details heavy snow and ice threat

Motorists are advised to take care on the roads this morning as an orange weather warning for fog remains in place until 10am.

A spokesman for the Met Office added: 'Patchy fog is expected to reform in places this evening and overnight.

Visibility could drop to 100 metres in some places bringing risky driving conditions and hindering flight take offs, he added.

Radiation fog occurs mainly in the winter, during clear skies and calm weather conditions.

"The fog for most areas will lift later on and we will see some brightness in the west but in eastern parts it is going to stay quite cold today with some patches of rain". Some bright or sunny spells are expected where fog has cleared and especially in coastal counties.


The meteorological office expects rather windy conditions tomorrow, with strong and gusty southeasterly winds given. Top afternoon temperatures of 3° to 7° are given for the day. Afternoon temperatures will range from 5 to 9 degrees Celsius, coldest in the north.

An icy arctic blast is set to batter Britain with snow and gale force winds as temperatures could plummet to -10C in some parts of the UK.

It will be windy and mostly cloudy elsewhere too with the rain spreading eastwards; some heavy rain is expected by dawn.

Temperatures are expected to remain low climbing no higher than 4C in the northwest but slightly warmer temperatures of 7C in London and the southeast. Overnight fog and any frost should clear.
