The warning, issued at 2.44pm, starts at 7pm this evening and runs until tomorrow morning at 10am.

Drivers are being warned to take extra care on the roads as visibility is expected to reduce to as low as 50m in places.

The warning says: “Patches of fog are likely to form readily in rural areas during Wednesday evening, becoming more widespread and locally dense overnight and at first on Thursday morning.

“Please be aware that low visibility could lead to extended journey times and difficult driving conditions in places.
Under clearing skies, patchy fog is expected to develop during Wednesday evening, initially in rural areas, but becoming more extensive across southern parts of England overnight, both at low levels and on hills. Visibilities will be very variable, but as low as 50-100 metres in places.”
