BBC Weather forecaster Matt Taylor urged motorists to “be wary” of the large swathes of hard-to-shake fog patches set to engulf the UK today. Mr Taylor said the tricky conditions will last through most of the morning across the north of England, compounded 60mph winds across Scotland. The meteorologist however noted most of the wind will bring in milder temperatures due to their southwesterly origin.

Mr Taylor said: “If you’re about to head out the door, it’s a bit of a mix as far as temperatures are concerned.

“Mildest at the moments across some parts of England and Wales, Cardiff and Bude around 11C or 12C.

“Opposite end of the scale, parts of north Wales and into northern England have a touch of frost around – temperatures around 2-3C.

“And that despite the fact we’ve got mild air with us. “

The BBC Weather forecaster continued: “We’ve got these two weather fronts, this is a weak one producing some drizzle and heavier bursts of rain into the north but it’s all helping bring in southwesterly winds across the country.

“Hence, for the most part, later on, it will be reasonably mild.

“Looking at radar charts, you can see there’s a little bit of drizzle through the Midlands, Wales, and the southwest.

“Bulk of the rain in the north and west of Scotland, with heavy bursts of rain.

“Some gusty winds here this morning, 60mph but with that colder air in northern parts of England, North Midlands, North Wales.”

He added: “Be wary, there’ll be some fog patches for your morning commute.

“They will gradually shift, it might take quite a while for some. Overall, for much of England and Wales, it will be relatively dry. Still some drizzle here and there in the south.

“Not too bad for Northern Ireland.”

The forecast for milder conditions comes as Britons were warned to brace for a significant storm later in the month potentially sparking severe snowing.

British Weather Services forecaster Jim Dale said warmer North Sea clashing with cooler water from the Pacific is the main source of the unsettled weather.

Mr Dale told The Sun: “We are expecting one more major storm this month which will set the trend for coming months.

“We expect five to six storms to hit through the winter period which could be severe enough to warrant naming.”
