The East Midlands, East of England, Yorkshire and Humber are all under moderate alert until noon on Friday. Despite the current mild temperatures with highs of 10C from Brighton to Tiree, fog will develop overnight and lead to some travel disruption.

The Met Office has predicted slower journey times with bus and train service delays and a chance of delays or cancellations to flights.

On Sunday, fog could be long-lasting as temperatures get cooler and the weather dry and cloudy.

Clare Nasir, a Met Office forecaster, said in a statement: “If you are travelling over the next few days, it is worth noting that you could run into some fog which could be stubborn and dense, so causing poor visibility on the roads.

She added: “The air is dank, lots of clouds trapped under this area of high pressure which extends across the country through Thursday.

“Across the far north, you can see that weather front bringing clouds and patchy drizzle.”

She predicts that fog will be slow to clear during Friday morning and may persist in places for much of the day.

Frost is also expected in parts of the country before a drop in temperatures over the weekend, a colder Christmas and a freezing end of the year.

Jim Andrews from AccuWeather said one scenario could even see the UK under the snow for Christmas.

He told “While we have rather good confidence in a strong anticyclone driving UK weather late this week and early next week, we have one forecast solution that shows break-down of high pressure later next week.

“This solution also shows a depression spreading cold rain and even snow into England and Wales on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.”

But Mr Andrews warns that it is still too early to predict snow next week.

He added: “A second global forecast model is slower in breaking down the anticyclone.

“It would, however, allow some rain in Northern Ireland and western Scotland.

“Our consensus forecast allows for a bit of rain in SW UK and Northern Ireland on Christmas Eve, and showery to rainy outbreaks over a wider area of the UK (Northern Ireland, Wales, England) on Christmas Day.”
