A yellow weather warning for fog in several parts of Essex has been issued by the Met Office tomorrow.

The fog is expected to set for around 10 hours from around 1am, through until 11am tomorrow, (Saturday, November 30).

Towns situated north of the county are most likely to be affected they include, Braintree, Halstead, Saffron Walden and eastern parts of Colchester.

A statement from the Met Office said: “Warnings of dense fog are issued when visibility is expected to fall below 200 metres.

“Severe disruption to transport occurs when the visibility falls below 50 metres.”

Anyone who is planning to drive in these weather conditions tonight or tomorrow have been warned of potential traffic delays and road disruptions.

Commuters are advised to check their route ahead of time.

The Met Office have issued the following safety tips and advice:

• Avoid travel if possible

• Drive very slowly with dipped headlights, full-beam lights reflect off the fog causing a 'white wall' effect

• Keep an eye on your speed, fog can give the illusion of moving in slow motion

• Use fog lights, but remember to turn them off when the visibility improves

• Don't hang on the taillights of the car in front, rear lights can give a false sense of security

• Watch out for freezing fog which is made of water droplets that freeze on contact with objects such as the pavement, road, car, etc. It can quickly form a layer of ice.
