Forecaster issues fresh fog warning

Posted On 31 Dec 2016 at 9:18 am

The Met Office issued a further warning about the blanket of fog over Brighton and Hove and the surrounding area – and the dangers that it brings.

Poor visibility is affecting driving conditions and leading to some flights being cancelled into and out of Gatwick Airport.

Industrial action is having a bigger effect on train services again today (Saturday 31 December).

The Met Office said: “Areas of fog have persisted in places and are expected to become more widespread and freezing in places into Saturday morning.

“Driving conditions will be difficult with journeys likely to take longer than usual and delays to air travel possible.”

The official forecaster said that fog and freezing fog patches with visibility less than 100 metres in places would be widespread overnight, adding: “The fog patches are expected to slowly clear … although some fog is likely to persist across parts of southern and southeastern England into Saturday morning.

“The remaining fog should clear from all parts by late Saturday morning.”

Last night the Brighton and Hove Albion match against Cardiff City at Falmer was called off because of the foggy conditions.
