Met Office: Yellow Warning of Fog tonight in Flintshire
The Met Office have put out a yellow warning for fog tonight in Flintshire the warning also applies to much of North West of England as well.
The Met Office say patchy fog is likely to form during Wednesday evening and the first part of the night, with smoke from bonfires potentially increasing the risk of visibility falling below 100 metres in some places for a time, before increasing cloud and wind helps to clear any dense fog later in the night.
Road users should be aware of the risk of localised and sudden deteriorations in visibility.
The Met Office Chief Forecaster’s assessment:
A ridge of high pressure will affect much of the UK during Wednesday evening and first part of the night, with clearing skies allowing a sharp fall in temperature and the development of patchy fog and even some freezing fog. Smoke from bonfires will also become trapped near the ground increasing the risk of localised poor visibility and increasing the risk of fog development particularly on low lying ground.
The fog risk will increase further east across England later in the night and the requirement for further warnings will be kept under review. Spotted something? Got a story? Send a Facebook Message | A direct message on Twitter | Email: News@Deeside.com
