Visibility could fall to as little 100 meters overnight as fog descends on much of Suffolk and Essex.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning in East Anglia with the potentially dense mist likely to linger until tomorrow morning’s rush hour.
The organisation’s website said the fog was expected to form soon after dark because of falling temperatures combined with “light winds and clear skies as well as wet ground”.
Eastern Wales, the Midlands and southern England are also going to be affected.
Chris Bell from Weatherquest said although the temperature would play a part in creating the conditions it was not unusual for this time of year.
“The frosty night and the widespread mist and fog could cause some low visibility,” he said, “and there are going to be some chillier nights because of the time of year.
“We’ll see temperatures pretty similar to last night and it is going to be colder during the day, and wet at times.

“High temperatures are still going to be between nine and 11 degrees. There is certainly no sign of anything that is going to be too bad for us through to next weekend.”
As of 1pm there were still some flood warnings in force from the Met Office following heavy rain over the weekend.
Ten warnings were issued for Suffolk and Essex on Sunday with more than 20 flood alerts also in place.
However it is expected the water levels will recede today, with no more heavy rain forecast this week.
