They said: "The fog that has started to form in the south of the warning area will become more widespread during Tuesday evening and night

"Fog is likely to become dense in places with visibility less than 100 metres, which may lead to some travel disruption and slower journey times.

"Fog will clear in the south and west of the area during Wednesday morning, but may persist until early afternoon in the north and east."

There is likely to be slower journey times with delays to bus and train services possible and a chance of delays or cancellations to flights.

Much of the region will see a dry and cold night with patchy cloud. Widespread frost looks likely to develop under the clear spells, along with patches of fog and freezing fog.
