Motorists are being warned to prepare for heavy fog this morning, as the Met Office issues weather warnings for multiple areas of the UK.

Temperatures are also set to plunge in the next few days as forecasters warn of harsh arctic winds approaching from the north.

Some regions will see snow fall for at least five days starting this week, as the wintry front begins to descend upon the country.

At the same time, lows of minus 11 threaten to unleash icy conditions, causing further problems on roads and pavements.

According to The Mirror, experts believe that between November 17 and 26 there is expected to be a low risk of wintry showers, but a high chance of frost and fog — especially in the north.

Meteorologist Tyler Ros from AccuWeather said: "The threat for snow between November 17-22 looks to be around normal for the time of the year, which is any accumulating snow is likely to occur in the higher elevations of northern England and Scotland.

"We do have to watch a cold snap that appears to move into eastern Europe early next week."

"If this bleeds westward towards the UK (with the core of the cold remaining in eastern Europe), then the temperatures will be near to slightly below normal during this stretch."

Meanwhile, data from independent forecaster WXCharts shows that temperatures could fall to as low as -7C and -11C for some regions from the week of November 23.

The Met Office has also issued a yellow weather warning of heavy fog for a number of areas in England this morning.

Visibility could be down to 50 metres in places and flights could be cancelled, according to forecasters.

These areas include South West England, East Midlands, North West England, West Midlands, Yorkshire and Humber, and Wales.

The warning is in place until 10am on Monday.
