The Chief Forecaster said: “Under clearing skies, patchy fog is expected to develop during Wednesday evening, initially in rural areas, but becoming more extensive across southern parts of England overnight, both at low levels and on hills.

“Visibilities will be very variable, but as low as 50-100 metres in places.”

The yellow ‘be aware’ warning is from 7pm this evening until around 10am on Thursday and covers the whole of Sussex.

This is the second successive evening the Met Office has issued a warning, although last night’s was just for West Sussex.

Readers in the West reported encountering very localised thick patches of fog.
