Those who got up early enough this morning will have seen that a blanket of fog had descended overnight.
This is the forecast for the next two days, as the Met Office predicts frost and fog in the morning and evening. However, during the day the weather will be much clearer and more settled with the clouds slowly dissipating throughout the day.
Today, Friday March 18, the start of the day will be colder with frost and fog in places. Once the fog and clouds lift, it will be a bright morning with some “decent” sunny spells, forecasters say.

Say goodbye to winter chills as it will start to get hot from today, especially in the sun, with a maximum temperature of 16°C. In the evening, light winds will mean a drop in temperature and frost at some places, with fog patches also possible.
In the weekend, Saturday March 19, will be a similar day. A cold start with patches of mist or fog rising early, to leave a “nice and dry” day. It will be particularly hot for this time of year, with another maximum temperature of 16°C.
The outlook for Sunday and Monday will be largely dry and bright. Continuing the trend, it will be cool and foggy in the morning and evening, but sunny spells will brighten up the days.
With this forecast, it looks like spring is here, if not on the way. Despite dry sunny weather yesterday, strong winds caused problems on the Liverpool waterfront. Traffic came to a standstill in Liverpool city center after The Strand closed on Thursday afternoon.
The southbound carriageway of the road has been closed by Merseyside Police due to unsecured glazing on a new build tower, at the junction of Red Cross Street and The Strand – believed to be The Copper House. A Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service spokesman said crews arrived at the scene at 12.03pm to find two panes of glass on a 15th floor balcony had come loose due to high winds.
