The Met Office issued this warning on Sunday 22 January.
The warnig is in place from Sunday night until 11 am on Monday 23 January.
The warning reads:
‘Areas of freezing fog are expected to develop on Sunday night, these will be dense at times and slow to clear from some spots on Monday.
‘Visibility as low as 50 to 100 metres could be encountered in a few areas and some untreated surfaces could turn icy, this combination meaning potentially difficult driving conditions.’
Advice for road users when travelling in fog
- Avoid travel if possible
- Drive very slowly with dipped headlights, full-beam lights reflect off the fog causing a ‘white wall’ effect
- Keep an eye on your speed, fog can give the illusion of moving in slow motion
- Use fog lights, but remember to turn them off when the visibility improves
- Don’t hang on the tail lights of the car in front, rear lights can give a false sense of security
- Watch out for freezing fog which is made of water droplets that freeze on contact with objects such as the pavement, road, car, etc. It can quickly form a layer of ice.
