Freezing temperatures and thick fog swept through Londoners yesterday evening and are expected to stay much of today (January 18)

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for fog with the chance of freezing in some places and disrupting transport covering large parts of England and the eastern edge of Wales.

The alert applies to most areas south of Scarborough and east of Manchester in the north, as well as east of Exeter in the south.

Temperatures will also drop to near 0 ° C in many places overnight, which means the fog may frost on some roads.

Met Office meteorologist Craig Snell said motorists should consider more time spent on the road

Frosty start for large parts of England and Wales, with freezing fog slowly melting in certain parts of mid and southern England.
