Exact date snow to hit as Brits face ‘coldest week’ of autumn and icy November

It is due to be the coldest week of autumn yet and the UK is set to face tumbling temperatures during November with the icy weather likely to hit this week

The temperature is set to fall considerably this week and snow could hit by Wednesday

Brits are being warned to wrap up warm as temperatures are set to plunge this week and snow could arrive as soon as Wednesday.

It is due to be the coldest week of autumn yet and the mercury will continue to tumble throughout November with temperatures below average in the second half of the month.

Forecasters have said there could be a carpet of snow for parts of the country on Wednesday and temperatures will struggle to top 10C.

WxCharts is anticipating that the coldest weather will be in Scotland and northern England with around an inch of snow possible in the Highlands around Inverness in mid-week.

The snow is set to head south and could reach Carlisle by the early evening on Wednesday and freezing temperatures mean it could well hang around until the weekend.

Jim Dale, of British Weather Services, told the Express: “This will be the coldest week of the autumn to date, with air and ground frosts for many inland areas even as soon as tomorrow.”

But by the middle of November the snow is likely to really hit with WxCharts predicting eight inches of snow could fall and stay put with the icy temperatures.

For people heading out for Bonfire Night the outlook is for freezing temperatures.

Exacta Weather’s James Madden said: “We could start to see some significant snow events over higher ground.

“Looking to Bonfire Night and there will be a risk of widespread frosts as we get a taste of some early wintry conditions.

“We are about to see a change in the weather paving the way for cold and wintry end to autumn.”

Before the snow on Wednesday, the rain that has hit much of the country over the past few days is likely to continue especially in coastal areas although there could be some sunny spells mixed in further inland.

But the the icy easterly wind sweeping in will ensure that there is a cold feel on Tuesday.

Forecasters have said that this week will be the coldest so far this autumn

Temperatures will be highest in southern and central England, hovering around 11C to 12C in the afternoon. While in Wales, Northern Ireland, the north of England and Scotland are unlikely to reach 11C with some parts of Scotland dropping as low as 9C.

“Just about anywhere could see a shower, but they will be most frequent and heaviest towards the north and west of the UK, around coasts in particular,” explained Met Office meteorologist Aiden McGivern.

The picture looks very similar for Wednesday but by the end of the week most of the showers in the south should have subsided.
