UK weather forecast – Christmas Day FREEZING FOG warnings for Britain after a warm and crisp Christmas Eve tonight

Sadly, there will be no white Christmas this year – instead people have been told to take extra care on the roads with a “danger to life” fog warning and 33 flood alerts.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning across England with the conditions expected to spread across the whole of Britain later this evening.

In some places visibility will be reduced to just 50ft and it won’t be cleared by the big day.

Heavy rain has caused streams to swell across England and Wales – resulting in more than 30 flood alerts.

The Met Office’s weather warning will last from 3pm today to 11am on Tuesday.


Sarah Kent meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “We are expecting fog to redevelop pretty much after sunset.

“With long nights it means fog can become thick leading to some pretty challenging drive conditions if people are travelling through the evening or tomorrow morning as they join friends and family for Christmas lunch.

“It’s going to be a cold one this evening so they’ll be freezing fog across central England, the west and then up into the north east of the country.
