The latest BBC weather forecast has warned of “hazardous driving conditions” as freezing fog and frost cover the country. BBC meteorologist Tomasz Schafernaker told BBC Breakfast viewers that the “really dense fog” will stretch from London to Yorkshire. This comes as the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for fog which is in place until 11am on Saturday.

Mr Schafernaker told BBC Breakfast: “It is frosty today. There is a lot of fog around today too.

“It is something we have had for a few days with high pressure.

“The fog really is very dense. Visibly is only 50 to 100mm in central and eastern England over the next few hours.

“That area of dense fog is stretching from London to Yorkshire.”

The yellow Met Office warning covers parts of the East Midlands, East of England, North East England, North West England, South West England, Wales, West Midlands, and Yorkshire and Humber.

The BBC weather presenter said that most of the fog will clear into the afternoon, leaving the rest of Saturday “bright or sunny for most”.

He continued: “Out towards the Atlantic, we have a weather front and that will bring us some milder air on Sunday, so there won’t be as much fog or frost on Sunday.

“We are expecting about average temperatures for the time of the year.

“Overall it is a fine day tomorrow, with temperatures of 10C in London and 8C in Glasgow.”

But, he warned that the mist and fog will return on Monday morning, again warning drivers about travel conditions.

The fog could bring difficult driving conditions with the chance of delays for buses, trains, and flights.

Frank Saunders, the chief meteorologist at the Met Office, said the freezing fog conditions could last into Monday.

He said: “Temperatures in England are expected to continue below normal in the coming days, with overnight minimum temperatures possibly getting to -4C in some rural areas again tonight, and perhaps approaching this value again on Sunday night.

“Freezing fog will also form again across some areas on Friday night and Saturday morning.

This comes as the high weather pressure also resulted in a poor air quality warning for London on Friday.

Experts had warned Londoners to avoid strenuous physical activity yesterday due to “very high” levels of pollution.

The high pressure dominating the UK meant emissions from vehicles and other pollutants were not blown away as they usually would be.
