The UK is forecast to face cloudy, foggy and frosty conditions for the remainder of the week. Detailing conditions from Wednesday to Friday, the Met Office said: “Settled across many areas with sunny spells, overnight frost and morning fog patches, stubborn to through the day.
“Milder and windier over northern Scotland, with rain mainly over western hills.”
But Accuweather meteorologist Alyssa Smithyer suggested frost and fog could cause “concern” during the week.
Ms Smithyer told Express.co.uk: “Overnight temperatures this week will reach near-freezing level Tuesday night through Thursday night for parts of Scotland, England and Wales.
“Overnight frost and foggy mornings will be a concern during this period.

“As the frontal boundary with associated showers shifts away from southern England Tuesday evening, any wet surfaces could turn slippery overnight as temperatures drop.”
Despite concerns over frost and fog, Ms Smithmyer said Brits shouldn’t expect heavy rainfall or snow.
“Across the UK on Tuesday, the main weather concern will be a frontal boundary crossing over central and southern England bringing showery spells,” she said.
“Rainfall amounts are likely not going to be substantial, with the highest isolated amounts falling around 0.25-0.50 inches (6-12 mm).
“Following this frontal passage, high pressure will move overhead, allowing for a calmer stretch of weather through the end of the week.
“Northern Scotland is still expected to receive occasional showers through Friday, although light in nature.
“Elsewhere across the UK, dry weather will be the theme after Tuesday.”
While Ms Smithmyer pointed out Accuweather has forecasted rainfall to remain insubstantial, England’s Environment Agency and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency have issued several flood alerts.

The Severn Vyrnwy confluence, South East Somerset Rivers (Upper Reaches) and West Somerset Streams could be affected.
Strath Oykel in Scotland has also been issued with a flood warning.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency said: “A combination of rain and melting snow have caused river levels to rise.
“Agricultural land in Strath Oykel, from Oykel Bridge to Inveroykel Bailey Bridge and at Invercassley, is at risk of flooding.”
However, they added: “The rain is forecast to clear the area during the evening so it is likely that river levels will begin to fall through the night, although with a gradual thaw of snow still occurring this may happen quite slowly.”
