Freezing fog to hit London next week, Met Office warns


LONDON: Freezing fog could hit London as the cold weather continues into next week, the Met Office has warned. West and north London are most likely to be affected by adverse conditions, with the fog struggling to clear during the day in cold areas. It could create potentially hazardous driving conditions during rush-hour on Monday and Tuesday morning. Mark Wilson, meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “There’s going to be one or two fog patches tonight but it’s tomorrow night that we are looking at quite a high risk of some really dense fog patches.” More freezing fog could also set in on Tuesday morning. Mr Wilson added: “Both mornings we could see some impact on rush-hour traffic, if we do see those very dense fog patches.” A low of minus 8.1C was recorded in South Farnborough, Hampshire, on Friday night while much of England saw temperatures fall to between minus 5C and minus 7C, the Met Office said.
