The warning said travellers should prepare for longer journey times, including delays to bus and train services.

Higher areas of land are expected to be the worst affected.

A yellow warning is classified as a time where travellers have to 'be aware' and to expect severe weather.

The Met Office website gives the following advice for drivers travelling in fog:

- Avoid travel if possible

- 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

- Do not 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.
