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.

Full statement from Max Lewis's family

Max Lewis, 19, died in the collision shortly before 3pm on Saturday 15 November 2014 on Forest Lane when a red Citroen Saxo he was travelling in collided with a white Renault Master van.

Max’s family would like to thank all his friends for their very kind love and support since he was killed last Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately we are not yet able to set a date for Max’s funeral, but as soon as we can we will let everyone know.

The vigil, flowers and tributes for Max at the crash site over the last few days has been amazing. We are so touched, it has been overwhelming. Our hearts are broken but it is lovely to know that he had so many friends and was so loved by you all.

We want everyone to be safe and the Police and Highways Agency will be moving the tributes very soon. We would like to say that people who would like to be together or bring their tributes and flowers, are very welcome to go to the fields at Max’s fathers house, Baldham, Seend.
