Met Office issues yellow weather warning for fog across the UK - full list of where it covers
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for fog across some parts of the UK
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for fog across parts of the UK, stating that people travelling should expect some delays to services. In the warning, the Met Office states: “areas of fog are likely to cause some travel delays on Tuesday morning”.
Fog can cause major disruption for those travelling, specifically affecting those on the road or using air travel due to reduced visibility.
According to the Highway Code headlights should be used when visibility is below 100 metres. Before setting off on a foggy journey, drivers should make sure their lights - especially fog lights - are working properly.
A Met Office spokesperson said: “Large areas of fog have developed across much of England overnight with visibility of 50-100 metres in many places leading to some challenging travel conditions. Fog will gradually lift through mid to late morning.”
