Icy roads, fog trigger code yellow weather warning

Meteorological institute KNMI issued a code yellow warning for the entire Netherlands, except the Wadden Islands. Commuters are warned to be careful of icy roads and thick fog during morning rush hour.

Areas that had rain overnight will have a good chance of icy and slippery roads. "All traffic participants can be hindered by this. Adjust your driving behavior", the KNMI warned. 

In the northeastern and central parts of the country fog can reduce visibility to less tan 200 meters. Motorists are advised to adjust their speed and keep a safe following distance.

The fog should dissipate and the ice on the roads melt away by around 8:00 a.m.

The day will be largely cloudy, but dry, with a chance of the sun breaking through during the the course of the morning. It will be a cold day, with maximums ranging between 2 and 6 degrees Celsius.
