They added: "Fog patches are likely to form during the early part of Wednesday evening, becoming more widespread overnight with the visibility falling below 100m in places".

Conditions will become cooler again on what is forecast to be a cold and misty night on Thursday, with frost, fog and temperatures as low as -2 degrees.

James Madden, a forecaster for Exacta Weather, warned that snow will hit "northern and western areas" next week.

Up to four inches could fall over those two days, with forecasters warning of blizzards and frequent lightning strikes, which could cause power cuts and mass travel disruption.

Light winds will stop mists clearing leaving many parts of the country under a thick pea-soup through much of the day.

On its website, the Met Office says: "The cooling of land overnight by thermal radiation cools the air close to the surface".

Regions most at risk will be London and the southeast; northwest England; southwest England Wales and the West Midlands.

Mr Wilson said: "There is a lot of radiation fog around at the moment". Lowest temperatures are expected to be 4° to 8°.

Where is radiation fog in the United Kingdom?

"This results in a reduction of the air's ability to hold moisture which allows water vapour to condense into tiny water droplets eventually leading to the formation of fog".
