This week the UK could see windy weather chillier days and rain, whilst in the higher parts of the country “we are likely to see some snowy weather.”
The Met Office has said colder spells are going to start with an “increasing chance of frost and fog.”
Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst added, “We’re likely to see some snowy weather in higher parts as October moves into November.”
From the start of November forecasters have said temperatures could fall to as low as -2C in the Scottish highlands and in London there could be highs of 4C as a new Arctic chill will set.
Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin said, this week “it could turn quite windy across the south on Wednesday.”
Deakin added a more “significant weather front drives south” on Thursday which will introduce a “much colder air for the end of this working week.”
He continued, “So it starts very mild, but it turns an awful lot chillier by Thursday and Friday, with plenty of rain for most of us in between.”
Met Office meteorologist Sarah Kent also said there was an increasing chance of rural frosts on Thursday.
Netweather forecaster Paul Michaelwaite also warned on Thursday, “rain in the north will be along a cold front, with colder air tucking in behind it.”
He added, “It’ll be cold enough for the high ground of Scotland to see some sleet and snow, with further wintry showers following behind it as well.
“By Thursday, all parts will be into the chilly airflow, with long sunny spells inland and a scattering of showers that will be most frequent near coasts exposed to the north to northwest wind, they’ll continue to be wintry in northern regions as well.
“The wind will be noticeable and will knock a few degrees or so off of the temperatures.”
