Dense fog hit parts of England in the early hours of this morning as drivers were alerted of possible chaos on the roads.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for the South West, East Midlands, London, the South East and East of England.

The fog could be so thick that visibility was predicted to dip as low as 50 metres in some areas and drivers were advised to remain vigilant on the roads.

People were also warned of possible delays to bus, train services and flights.

The alert was in place from 4am to 10am, though forecasters said some stubborn patches could persist until much later on.

The worst of the fog is forecast for the East of England, South East and London.

In advice about fog published on its website, the Met Office said: ‘Things to bear in mind when planning your journey are that fog can be very localised, so may not be apparent when you set off, and it can affect air travel and the roads in different ways.’

The Met Office also said that overnight fog will continue to be a feature of the weather with light winds until October 22.

Elsewhere, a band of rain, heavy at first across Scotland and Northern Ireland, will edge slowly towards the South East, getting lighter and patchier as it reaches northern England and Wales.

People should make the most of the unseasonably warm temperatures in October as the long-term forecast shows the weather turning colder and snow to fall over higher ground in the UK as the month moves into November.

Snow could hit parts of Britain during the October half–term holidays, with temperatures expected to plummet in the coming weeks.

The Met Office’s long-range forecast for October 23 to November 6, said: ‘Turning more widely unsettled across the UK, although the wettest and windiest conditions are likely to remain in the north and the northwest, with more settled conditions to southern and eastern areas at times.

‘Moving into early November, more widespread dry spells are possible across the country, with the risk of overnight fog which will clear by day.

‘Through this period temperatures will remain near or above average.

‘However, there is a chance of colder conditions becoming established in early November.’
