The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of fog this morning. Some freezing fog patches on Tuesday morning are likely to lead to major travel disruption. The affected areas are East Midlands, East of England, London & South East England, North West England, South West England, Wales and the West Midlands.
Carol Kirkwood said: “It is a frosty start to the day and we also have some fog this morning, the Met Office is warning about it
“Patchy fog across the Glasgow area but we do have some dense patches of fog anywhere from Cumbria, Merseyside, Cheshire, Wales into the Midlands and also southern and southeast England and that could drift into East Anglia.
“We’ve got some rain coming our way it’s not too far from Northern Ireland courtesy of a weather front.
“A ridge of high pressure clinging on by the skin of its teeth elsewhere.
“The weather front in the west will produce rain at times across Northern Ireland, Devon and Cornwall as well as Wales.”
She continued: “As we head on through the evening and over the night we will still have our weather front moving a little bit further towards western Scotland as well as Northern Ireland.
“But not as cold a night for most as last night.
“Although in northern England and Scotland it will be cold, temperatures falling to freezing or -1.
“By the time we get to the weekend most of the UK should be back in double figures but there will still be some rain at times.”
Heavy snowfall will move across Europe this week as temperatures drop below freezing.
There will also be a thick cloud moving across the continent from the west.
It comes as Severe Weather EU has claimed the polar vortex is set to “collapse” by the end of the year which creates acute winter conditions and can lead to extreme weather.
