After two nights of sub-zero temperatures and freezing fog – which led to travel disruption at airports, on the rail network and on the roads - heavy rain is forecast for the weekend.

The change is likely to happen tomorrow when milder temperatures are expected accompanied by heavy rain which could last several days.

“Some places where the fog lingers will struggle to get above freezing today,” said Matt Dobson, a senior forecaster with the Press Association’s weather division, MeteoGroup.

“London and the South East, where the sun will eventually come through, may reach around 3-4C (37-39F).

Mr Dobson continued: “This cold spell won’t last. The fog will lift. But although the big change on Thursday night, with an Atlantic front moving in, will mean higher temperatures, there is likely to be a lot of wet weather.

“The south of England could be very wet on Friday and we are likely to see wet conditions all the way up to Christmas.

“The exception could be a short, cold snap in the weekend before Christmas.”

Flights were cancelled at Heathrow and London City Airport this morning because of freezing fog overnight.

Commuters also faced delays on First Capital Connect and East Midlands trains into St Pancras due to overhead line problems.
