Winter strikes back as chilly fog and mist means cold start to the weekend with temperatures dropping to 54F

  • Low cloud and fog will see temperatures drop to 6-7C today with much of the country expected to remain dry 
  • As the chilly fog moves northwards, Britain can expect to enjoy milder weather and highs of 54F (12-13C)
  • Patches of drizzle are expected to move mainly to the west and some patchy fog may remain in the southeast

The country will feel a little chillier today than it did on Friday as a cold fog and low cloud begin to emerge over the UK.

The low cloud and patches of fog will see temperatures drop to 6-7C today, with much of the country expected to remain dry and mild throughout the day.

However as chilly fog moves northwards into Wales and northern England, Britain can expect to enjoy milder weather and highs of 54F (12-13C), with the highest temperatures expected in North Devon.

As the fog clears, patches of drizzle are expected to move mainly to the west and some patchy fog may remain in the southeast.

The country will remain mostly dry this weekend as the clouds and fog spread northwards towards northern England and Wales

Low cloud will start the weekend with occasional sunshine and chances of rain in northern parts of the country

Alex Burkill told The Express: ‘Temperatures won’t fall quite as slow as they did last night but we will still see a few fog patches developing particularly towards the southeast.

‘The reason it has been so warm and so settled recently is because of the jet stream has been running through the north of the UK. 

‘However as we go through the weekend and into the new working week, that does mean things will turn a little more changeable.’

However temperatures may again plummet as we head into next week, with northern parts of the country expected to hit 0C. 

The plummeting temperature may see the country brace itself for yet another outbreak of snow by the end of February.
