Thick fog across the East of England overnight could cause travel disruption during the weekend, weather forecasters have warned.

Norwich-based Weatherquest forecaster Dan Holley Tweeted on Friday night to say that in East Anglia: “There could be some fairly dense fog patches both tonight and Saturday night, which may not properly clear (or lift into low cloud) until late morning/lunchtime on Saturday and Sunday in a few places.

“Some travel disruption is possible.”

It followed the first air frost of October on Thursday night into Friday, with Santon Downham near Thetford recording a temperature of 0C.

Weatherquest Tweeted: “Mostly clear skies in the evening will lead to a chilly night with mist and fog patches forming, becoming thick around dawn.
