A NEW fog warning has been issued by the Met Office as areas have persisted in places through Friday.
Foggy areas are expected to become more widespread and freezing in places tonight and into Saturday morning.
Driving conditions will be difficult with journeys likely to take longer than usual and delays to air travel possible.
The chief forecaster says: “Fog and freezing fog patches with visibility less than 100 metres in places are expected to become more widespread again during Friday night.
“The fog patches are expected to slowly clear from the north and west of the area during the second half of the night, although some fog is likely to persist across parts of southern and southeastern England into Saturday morning.
“The remaining fog should clear from all parts by late Saturday morning.”
The warning, which is in place until at least 10am on Sunday, includes the council areas of Wiltshire, Swindon, Bath and North East Somerset, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
