According to Tyler Roys from Accu Weather the fog will last from late Thursday evening until Friday morning. It comes as the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for early Thursday morning in northern Scotland.

It warns of “very strong” high winds which could cause disruption.

This means that there could be delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport in the area.

It’s also likely that some coastal communities could be affected by spray and/or large waves.

There is also the possibility of snow in the Scottish Highlands on Saturday morning.

This is because of a storm that is impacting Scandinavia and Eastern Europe.

There could also be snow on Sunday with the possibility of it lingering into Monday due to a storm.

It could settle in the Highlands and possibly reach the interior valleys.

There is also the strong possibility of icy conditions in areas that see snow mainly in the Scottish Highlands.

Temperatures are likely to be from the minus single digits in the Scottish Highlands to the upper single digits in southern England and the Midlands.

Tyler Roys, Senior Meteorologist and Lead European Forecaster at AccuWeather outlined the threat from fog.

He told “There is a fog threat for late Thursday night into Friday morning southern Wales, western Midlands and southwestern England.”

Mr Roys went on to explain the threat of snow.
