How to avoid fog in the UK
By now you’ve probably heard the news: fog is expected to reach parts of the UK by the end of the week.
The weather bureau in London says the fog will affect up to 15,000 people in the south east of England.
The agency says it is not forecasting any severe weather, and no road closures have been announced.
The fog is due to form in the northern parts of England in the early hours of Wednesday morning, and travel to and from the Midlands and parts of London is expected in the afternoon and evening.
The UK weather bureau says the maximum visibility is likely to be between 40 and 60 metres.
The British National Grid says there are no immediate travel restrictions.
The National Weather Service in Manchester says visibility will be reduced to 20-30 metres from the area of the centre of Manchester and surrounding areas, and will decrease to 10-15 metres by the evening.
