Met Éireann fog warning

Visibility less than 100m in places. Some patches of fog will form and also some frost.

Remote parts of Britain will be hit by freezing winds as temperatures could drop as low as -10C in and snow could even fall on higher grounds.

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGiven said: "The biggest issue will be the fog first thing Thursday, Northern Ireland, western parts of England and east Wales most at risk, there could be some issues on the roads, could be some flight delays because of the dense fog".

The warning, which was originally issued at 2am this morning, now runs until 2am Friday morning and is in effect for the entire country.

Light winds will stop mists clearing leaving many parts of the country under a thick pea-soup through much of the day.

SNOW and ice could hit West Fife on Monday and Tuesday.

'We have already seen fog around and it will continue over the next couple of hours and into today.

MOTORISTS in Limerick have been urged to exercise extra caution on roads this Thursday evening, after Met Eireann issued an uncommon "Status Orange" fog weather alert.

According to Met Eireann, fog - causing very poor visibility - will linger in many inland areas this afternoon and will become more extensive and dense this evening and, for a time, tonight.

"Slower journey times are possible and there is a chance of delays to flights".
