Storm Barbara set to hit the Christmas getaway

Bad news if you're planning to drive home for Christmas on Friday. Storm Barbara will hit Fridat afternoon. Worst in the North with gusts up to 90mph.

Bookies believe Britain will wake up to a wet rather than a white Christmas on December 25th thanks to Storm Barbara. Coral pushed the odds out on snow sweeping the nation, as forecasters predict gale-force winds and torrential rain over the weekend instead. It is now 6-1 to snow in London on Christmas Day.

A weather warning has been issued for London and the South East with visibility expected to be less than 100 metres in places.

With little cloud and light winds fog is expected to readily develop during Monday evening, affecting the evening rush hour in some areas as well as the morning rush hour on Tuesday.

Fog is then expected to be locally slow to lift and clear on Tuesday, lingering for much of the morning and perhaps onwards into the afternoon in some spots.
