Visibility could be down to less than 100 metres in some places.

The fog should clear early on Tuesday although some patches may persist into the morning.

Motorists should be aware of potential disruption to transport.

The chief forecaster’s assessment at the time of writing said: “With little cloud and light winds fog is expected to readily develop during Monday evening, affecting the evening rush hour in some areas as well as the morning rush hour on Tuesday.

“Fog is then expected to be locally slow to lift and clear on Tuesday, lingering for much of the morning and perhaps onwards into the afternoon in some spots.”
