WHY HAS IT BEEN SO FOGGY?
High Pressure is dominating our weather and it'll stay that way into next week. The current position of the High Pressure, sat right over us, means the wind is very light and the sky clear allowing temperatures to drop overnight. This light wind clear sky combo are perfect conditions for dense fog patches to form.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TOMORROW AND THIS WEEKEND?
There are a few subtle changes though as the High pressure slips west into the Atlantic.
This shift will allow the wind to change direction to a northwesterly by the weekend and it will pick up slightly too. The increase in wind means we will see fewer fog patches but it will feel cooler too.
In the short term we have more fog to deal with tonight but also mild and sunny condition to end the working week.
Here is a summary of what's in store:
Fog lifting to reveal sunny spells
Feeling pleasant at 13c
Clear skies this evening
Temperatures will drop to 2/3c in towns and cities but freezing in rural locations
My midnight the fog will start to reform
It will be dense and extensive

It will be dry with sunny spells in the afternoon
Temperatures climbing to 16c in the East Midlands and 14c in the West so feeling mild
Breeze will pick up, isolated fog patches
Sunny spells, dry, breezy, feeling fresher
Sunny spells slightly milder than Saturday
