The Met Office has warned of heavy snowfall across the north of the country from Monday with the freezing weather set to reach the south by Wednesday night. By 9pm on November 25, temperatures are expected to plummet to below zero degrees in Scotland and the north of England.

Temperatures will be milder in London and the south east, with the weather reaching up to 4C in the capital, according to latest WX Charts.

A spokesman for MetDesk said: “Look away now if you don’t like the cold.

“A big change is shown for next week, with Arctic winds, plummeting temperatures and snow for some.”

However, the cold weather will continue across the rest of the country with temperatures dropping to below 0C in the capital by 6am on November 26.

According to netweather.com, snow is expected to fall across London and the south east by 3pm on November 27.

By 6am on November 29, Londoners will wake up to frost and possibly snow as temperatures are expected to plummet to -1C in the capital.

Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst said: “Temperatures in London next Thursday could be 7C at maximum – so it will get below average.

“Night time could be nearer to freezing and we could see snowfall. It could be sleet and rain mixed during the day and then there could be a cold blast that heads south and gives snow.

“London will be dry and turn colder from this Sunday.

“At the beginning of next week temperatures will be average and dry and by the end of the week it will turn colder with potential snow and wintry showers.”

According to the latest charts, Cumbria will see temperatures plummet to -4C by 6am on Monday.

As November comes to an end, December will remain bitterly cold, especially in the Scottish Highlands.

At midnight on December 4, temperatures in Inverness and the Highlands will drop to -8C, with the freezing weather continuing into the north of England.

The likes of Newcastle will see temperatures of around -4C as December starts.

The long range forecast given by the Met Office for November 22- December 1 says: “High pressure will often lie close to western or southwestern parts of the UK during this period.

“This will tend to bring to a colder than average north or northwesterly airflow for a time.

“The most unsettled conditions will likely be across northern areas.

“Here, showers or longer spells of rain are likely with snow likely across higher ground and possibly falling to low levels at times.

“Strong winds are possible across the north, especially around coasts.

“Further south, it is likely to remain somewhat drier with fewer showers, but there is even a slight chance of some wintry weather here.

“At points when winds ease any clearer and calmer conditions that prevail will lead to some cold nights with frost and fog.”
