which stays with us for the rest of this week. The fog is quickly


reforming and overnight, it will get down to around zero, possibly even


-1 and a very foggy start to the day tomorrow. It should lift. In places,


it may stick around and quickly reform when it gets dark again, with


a top temperature between six and 8 degrees. As for the outlook, as we


move through the rest of this week and into the weekend, a lot of cloud


on Friday, a few breaks developing. Slightly more of a breeze,


south-west winds giving temperatures back up into double figures.

more extensive and causing disruption overnight tonight. There


is a warning from the Met office and you can stay in touch on the website
