Drivers are being warned of potential heavy fog causing visibility problems tomorrow morning.
Jim Bacon, forecaster at University of East Anglia-based Weatherquest, said “ideal conditions” for fog could be created by a combination of very little wind and the recent wet weather soaking the ground.
Mr Bacon said: “I think we’re in for a pretty foggy morning. I think we’ll find that most of East Anglia will have pretty widespread and dense fog and by the time people are driving to work it could be pretty thick.
“It will probably hang around for a fair bit of the morning, which fog usually does at this time of year. There should be a fair bit about by midnight so I would think it will clear by about 10 or 11 o’clock in the morning.”
Temperatures are expected to hover at around 10C during this morning and reach a maximum of 15C.
Mr Bacon added: “It will be one of the more foggy mornings for a while and it will be one where it will be wise for drivers to take extra care when driving, because the visibility could become very poor.”
Wind speeds are due to pick up in the coming days, which should prevent further fog problems throughout the week.
Norwich International Airport is on alert for fog problems but not expecting flight delays.
A spokesman said: “If you are flying out then the best advice is to turn up as normal and if you are expecting someone to arrive, and to pick them up, then check our website for the latest.”
