WEATHER WARNING ISSUED FOR ISLE OF WIGHT AS FOG ROLLS IN

The IW Met Service has issued a yellow weather warning for fog, which is set to come into force today (Sunday).

The service says that coastal fog in southern and western parts will occasionally spread to other areas at times through today.

Towards evening and overnight the foggy conditions will become more extensive, affecting much larger parts of the island down to sea level, leading to extremely poor visibility in some parts of the Island – especially those on higher ground.

Through Monday morning the fog will start to lift and break up in some places, however in some western and southern coastal areas it is likely to remain, possibly throughout the day.

As we move through Monday night the fog will become rather widespread once again, potentially affecting large parts of the island, however as we move into Tuesday daytime it will likely burn back to the coast.

Islanders are warned to expect dramatically reduced visibility, sometimes developing very quickly over localised areas.

Potentially hazardous driving conditions close to windward coasts and over high ground, especially the Shanklin to Ventnor route (via cowleze), the Military road, the downs road from Brading to Newport, the upper coastal road from Ventnor to Niton and route between Wroxall and Upper Ventnor.

Because they are very mean and are happy to compromise everyones safety to save a bit of dirty filthy smelly diesel.
