A yellow weather warning for fog has been issued for the Isle of Wight and will remain in force until Friday morning.

Forecasters at IW Met Service say that low cloud and hill fog, initially affecting western and southern coasts and hills during this evening, will spread across the Island as low cloud. This will mostly affect the hills at first, but will gradually dip closer to sea level as the evening and night goes on with some very dense fog likely.

The fog is likely to lift into low cloud for a time tomorrow morning (Thursday) before clearing away from most areas, however, western and southern coasts are likely to see a continued risk of hill and coastal fog. This will likely thicken up and become widespread once again towards tomorrow evening and overnight.

Islanders are warned that elevated routes will see a significant reduction in visibility, leading to rather hazardous driving conditions, especially later in the night and towards Thursday morning.

Small watercraft operating along western and southern coasts may also be impacted with occasionally very poor visibility and cross-Solent travel is at risk of seeing some delays or disruptions, especially later in the night and into tomorrow morning.
