Forecasters say that fog patches will develop in low lying rural parts of the Island throughout this evening, becoming more widespread and locally dense as the night goes on.
As the temperature drops to below 0c in more rural parts, some of the fog will become ‘freezing fog’ – fog freezing upon contact with surfaces, leading to larger deposits of ice than would otherwise develop outside of the foggy areas.
The warning is in force from 20:00 tonight until 11:00 tomorrow.
Disruption to travel is possible, especially where freezing fog develops. These areas could see slippery conditions on untreated roads and pavements. Cross-Solent travel may also be affected by the fog, especially in more central and western parts of the Solent.
Fog will lift and clear as Tuesday morning progresses.
Island Roads are gritting the road network from 20:00 tonight, as previously reported by Island Echo.
