The Met Office issued a yellow warning this afternoon (January 20), warning that freezing fog which will likely develop later tonight and could lead to visibility falling below 100 metres.

“Freezing fog is expected to lead to some travel delays on Friday night and Saturday morning,” said the Met Office on its website just before 2pm.

“Freezing fog is expected to develop during Friday night and will be slow to clear in places through Saturday morning. Some fog could be quite dense with the visibility falling below 100 metres at times.

“Additionally, freezing fog may lead to some untreated surfaces becoming slippery. Western England is more likely to see freezing fog persist into late morning and in a few places into the afternoon.”


Powys residents should prepare for slower journey times with delays to bus and train services possible. There is also a chance of delays or cancellations to flights

The latest news is one of a slew of yellow warnings that have been issued over the last week – with rain and flooding during last week’s mild temperatures being replaced by snow showers and icy stretches this week as temperatures have plummeted.
