Just last week weather expert Tyler Ros from AccuWeather confirmed that it is likely we could experience snow by the end of November: “We do have to watch a cold snap that appears to move into eastern Europe next week.”

“If this bleeds westward towards the UK then temperature will be near to slightly below normal during this stretch”

While there’s no snow as of yet, the cold snap has definitely arrived with a chilly and frosty start to the mornings for most of the UK.

The weather is likely to stay dry but will become increasingly cloudy overnight. Temperatures will remain cold, however the likelihood of frost is low.
