A WEATHER warning for thick fog has been issued by the Met Office this evening, with drivers being reminded to take extra care on the roads.
The yellow alert – which covers a large section of west and eastern England, the Midlands and all of Wales – is in place from 10pm this evening until midday on Wednesday.
The weather agency said: “Dense fog patches likely to cause some travel disruption overnight and during Wednesday morning.”
Delays to transport services are likely, while there is a chance of delays or cancellations to flights
It comes as the bookies now make it just 5/2 for this month to enter the record books as the wettest January ever.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “There’s every chance this month breaks January records for all the wrong reasons, with more miserable weather on the way.”
