The heavy fog is expected to move across the majority of the UK, affecting ​​South West England, East Midlands, North West England, West Midlands, Yorkshire and Humber and Wales overnight. The warnings are currently in place until 10am on Monday.

“The threat for snow between November 17-22 looks to be around normal for the time of the year, which is any accumulating snow is likely to occur in the higher elevations of northern England and Scotland,” Tyler Ros, AccuWeather meteorologist, told the Mirror.

“We do have to watch a cold snap that appears to move into Eastern Europe early next week.

“If this bleeds westward towards the UK (with the core of the cold remaining in eastern Europe), then the temperatures will be near to slightly below normal during this stretch.“

The fog warnings follow predictions the country could see temperatures fall, making snowfall likely.

“Throughout this period, winds will often be blowing from the west or northwest, with some incursions of northerly winds possible.

“High pressure will often be close by to the south and southwest of the UK, bringing largely settled and dry conditions here, this possibly extending to all areas of the country at times.

“However, some spells of rain are likely to affect northern areas, accompanied by brisk winds.

“There is a possibility of a trend towards colder conditions later, with a low risk of wintry showers in the north. Otherwise, temperatures are likely to be close to or just below average.

“Under high pressure, frost and fog is likely overnight, this fog slow to clear during the morning.”
