The Met Office have issued Merseyside a severe weather warning for fog. The warning is in place from 9pm Sunday – 12pm Monday.

Areas of fog are expected to form again during Sunday night becoming widespread and dense in places by Monday morning.

There’s a chance that travel may be impacted by poor visibility, with some minor disruption expected.

The fog is expected to form again overnight tonight, reducing visibility to less than 100m at times.

Monday morning fog is expected to lift and clear by midday.

A forecaster at the Met Office said: “A slack, moist airmass lying across much of England will allow fog to readily form again on Sunday night, reducing visibility to less than 100 m at times.

“Fog will slowly lift and clear from many places through Monday”.

The warning comes as Mersey Ferry services were suspended this morning due to thick fog rolling in off the Mersey.

More suspensions in the Ferry service could be expected tomorrow as more fog is expected. Sunday’s ferry services will continue at 3pm from Pier Head.

Many people across Merseyside woke up to spooky scenes this morning as heavy fog hit the region.
