Dense fog hit parts of England in the early morning hours as motorists were warned of possible chaos on the roads.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather forecast for the South West, East Midlands, London, South East and East of England.

The fog could be so thick that visibility was predicted to drop as low as 50 meters in some areas, and motorists were advised to be vigilant on the roads.

People were also warned of possible delays on bus, train services and flights.

The warning was in place from kl. 4 to kl. 10, although predictors said some stubborn stains could continue until much later.

The worst fog is expected in eastern England, south-east and London.

People were shocked by the weather conditions this morning and some said this is the worst fog they have ever experienced.

Trisha Greenhalgh, a professor of primary care based in Oxford, shared a photo on Twitter of the city’s canals that was almost hidden by the fog.

In the fog advice posted on its website, the Met Office said: ‘The thing to keep in mind when planning your trip is that fog can be very localized, so it may not be obvious when you leave , and it can affect air travel and roads in different ways. ‘

The Met office also said overnight fog will continue to be a drag with light winds until October 22nd.

Elsewhere, a rainstorm that was once heavy across Scotland and Northern Ireland will slowly be edged to the south-east and become lighter and more uneven as it reaches northern England and Wales.

People should get the most out of the unusually warm temperatures in October, as the long-term forecast shows that the weather will get colder and snow will fall over higher terrain in the UK as the month moves into November.

Snow could hit parts of the UK during the half-year holiday in October, with temperatures expected to plummet in the coming weeks.

The Met Office’s long-distance forecast for 23 October to 6 November said: ‘Turns more turbulent across the UK, although the wettest and windiest conditions are likely to remain in the north and north-west, with more definite conditions in the south and east areas at times.

‘From the beginning of November, more widespread droughts are possible throughout the country with the risk of overnight fog, which will survive during the day.

‘During this period, temperatures will remain near or above average.

‘However, there is a chance that colder conditions will be established in early November.’
