Snow forecasts are likely to become more common now the clocks have changed and temperatures are plunging. Winter coats, hats, gloves and scarves may be needed sooner than expected as Britons prepare for snowfall. The Met Office has predicted flurries could hit sooner rather than later. Express.co.uk analyses snow risk and fall maps to determine the likely day snow will hit.
The Met Office issued a warning this week about temperatures getting colder and strong gales forecast to hit in the coming days.
The forecaster said Britons can expect temperatures to turn chillier in the week ahead.
The Met Office said: “After a wet and windy Halloween with a deep Atlantic low-pressure system and damaging winds, it turns colder into the new week.”
The forecaster has warned conditions will be breezier and feel very chilly on Wednesday, with isolated showers and sunny spells forecast for Thursday.
Over the weekend, conditions will turn cloudier from the northwest, with rain and strengthening winds steadily transferring southeast.
Jim Dale, from the British Weather Services, told Express.co.uk conditions will be extremely cold this week.
He said: “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.”
Forecasters have warned snow is likely to fall this month – which is sooner than many expected.
Exacta Weather’s James Madden told the Sun: “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.”
These comments came after the Met Office’s long-range forecast predicted snow between November 15 and 29.
The long-range forecast has now been updated and instead indicates a chance of wintry showers with conditions likely to be less stormy and windy.
There is a risk of more settled conditions in some places, with frost and fog increasing likely and temperatures slightly colder than average.
The weather will be drier than average, according to the forecaster.
There is a greater chance of wintry showers from the north and northwest, initially over higher ground, before it reaches lower levels in the north later in the month.
