Freezing fog, what fog?

The freezing fog forecast by Louise Lear and Meteogroup never literally materialised overnight. To be fair I think they were given a bum steer by the Met Office regarding this one because of the yellow warning they had already issued. I wasn’t quick enough to capture a screenshot of that (as the Met Office never archive them), but I did capture the above screenshot from last nights 6.30 pm forecast on the BBC1 using iPlayer.

There looked to be too much of a gradient overnight across the southeast and the wind never fell light. We had fog one day last week around the inner Firth from Inverness right across to Dingwall, it wasn’t desperately thick 100-400 metres but it did last most of daylight hours. I couldn’t decide if it was radiation fog or sea fog or just a combination of both, either way there was no yellow warning issued for it, probably because the population affected was low and of little value to be much of an impact, and let’s face it Gatwick is a slightly busier airport than Dalcross.
