Drivers had a foggy journey to content with on their into work this morning as autumn finally begins to arrive.

Early mist and fog patches are lifting into a clear day today, and its expected to be mostly dry with some sunshine.

Tonight is expected to remain dry, but with mist and fog patches creeping back in and a chillier feel than we've been accustomed to.
