UK Weather: Met Office warns of ‘increased chance’ of snow by end of November as winter starts to bite

Forecasters are warning of an increased risk of snow with temperatures set to plummet towards the end of the month.

The Met Office says there is an increased risk of wintry showers from mid November onwards – even at lower levels.

Temperatures have started to fall in recent days, hovering around zero at night with widespread frosts expected.

The colder weather is expected to bite from the middle of the month.

The forecast from November 18-December 2 says more settled and colder weather is likely to replace the stormy conditions of the last few weeks.

And some of the white stuff could be on the cards.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “Through this period, there is an increased chance of wintry showers from the north and northwest, initially over higher ground but also a low risk at lower levels later in the month.

“While there is little sign of prolonged, widespread settled weather, conditions are likely to be less stormy and windy.

“Where there are more settled spells, frost and fog are increasingly likely, with temperatures slightly colder than average.

“Overall it will remain drier than average.”

People have started to reach for their woolies and switch on their heating on once again as the mercury begins to plummet..

Temperatures will remain chilly for the rest of the week before rain and thicker cloud arrives from from the west.

Unsettled conditions will continue until the middle of the month before cooler weather returns.

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.
