London weather: Met Office issues yellow weather warning for dangerous fog and icy temperatures
Londoners should brace themselvesA yellow weather warning of fog has been issued by the Met Office, set to affect much of England including London and even a bit of Wales.
Arctic air is coming to the UK, and forecasters are warning of some wintry conditions in the coming weeks.
It hasn’t been the coldest winter ever and, in fact, the UK recorded the warmest New Year’s Day on record with temperatures of 16.°3C (61.3°F) in St James’s Park in central London on 1 January.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Is it going to snow?
Some forecasters seem to think so.
James Madden, a forecaster for Exacta Weather, has said he expects wintry conditions across the country and as far south as London.
But this is likely only to be a short spell, and temperatures are expected to get milder.
He told the Express: “We are expecting to see some changes as we head into the final month of the winter.

“Cold and snow will encroach from the North during the early part of February, and some of these wintry downpours may reach as far south as central England and the capital.
“The good news for snow-haters is that these blasts may only be brief as the mild weather from the Atlantic pushes across the UK.
“A north-south divide will also bring the worst of the weather to Scotland and northern England with southern Britain likely to dodge the worst of the weather.”
WXCharts weather maps show temperatures in Scotland going below zero from next Tuesday onwards, and frost and snow could come as far south as Yorkshire or the North West of England.
The Met Office is also reporting “wintry showers” at the start of February.

Patchy drizzle and low cloud in southern UK clearing gradually, replaced by sunnier skies already in central areas; feeling milder. Blustery showers in parts of Scotland, wintry on hills, with early gales in the North East; winds and showers easing later.
Many areas dry with clear spells, leading to a colder night. Frost will be fairly widespread in rural southern, central and eastern regions, with patchy fog in the South too.
Many areas starting bright and chilly, fog in southern areas lifting. Cloudier skies and freshening winds spreading to most parts, with some rain in the West and North West. Milder later.

31 January – 9 February
Through this period, the weather is likely to start off wetter than of late, with blustery showers in the North and cloudy with rain in the South, before clearing away through the day on Monday to leave brighter conditions. Cloudy and dry weather is then possible to return for most at the end of January, while it is likely to be wet and windy in the North West at times, with wintry showers possible over high ground in Scotland.
Moving into February, the largely settled and cloudy weather is likely to remain for most, with some rain and wind in the far North West at times. Overall, temperatures are likely to be milder than average through this period, although some brief colder than average spells in the North are possible.
