A WEATHER warning has been issued by the Met Office for fog in the South West tonight and tomorrow.

The Met Office says fog patches are expected from around 8pm today (Thursday), lasting until lunchtime tomorrow, for large parts of the country, including Gloucestershire.

During this time they warn that "some dense fog and freezing fog patches... likely leading to some travel disruption".

Forecasters advice includes:

Drive very slowly with dipped headlights, full-beam lights reflect off the fog causing a 'white wall' effect

Keep an eye on your speed, fog can give the illusion of moving in slow motion

Use fog lights, but remember to turn them off when the visibility improves

Don't hang on the tail lights of the car in front, rear lights can give a false sense of security

Watch out for freezing fog which is made of water droplets that freeze on contact with objects such as the pavement, road, car, etc. It can quickly form a layer of ice.
