Patchy fog is expected to form soon after dark tonight and then will become quite widespread and locally dense. It will freeze during the evening, reducing visibility to less than 100m in places.

It is likely to persist through tomorrow's rush hour but may begin to disperse as cloud increases from the south.

Transport could be disrupted so commuters should be prepared.
