First snow of autumn could fall in next few days as temperatures set to plummet

The first snow of autumn could fall on UK towns within days as temperatures are set to drop 10 degrees.

Weather experts at the Met Office predict temperatures to be 10C down than a week ago, The Mirror reported.

Meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: "With Atlantic weather now in charge, we can expect very changeable weather through the week.

"There'll be wind and rain, but also showery and sunnier periods at times."

And This Morning's Dave The Weatherman said the hot weather of earlier this month is long gone.

He said: "There's a snow moon on the 29th of October, followed by two more snow moons in the first three weeks of November.

“So it is going to be bitterly cold and very frosty.

“That's bad news for people with gas and electric because your bills are going through the roof.”

Torrential rain has already fallen overnight in Liverpool, Birmingham and Bristol.

Colder temperatures mean those places – and more – could be set for snow.

The Met Office forecast for the next two weeks predicts spells of rain and strong winds.

They write: "Low pressure is expected to lie close to the UK early in this period, bringing showers or longer spells of rain, heavy at times, to many areas.

"Strong winds are also likely, particularly along coasts.

"As this area of low pressure moves away another is likely to move to the north of the UK.

"This will bring further showers or longer spells of rain to the north and northwest, along with the potential for strong winds.

"Drier and more settled conditions are expected across the south and east as high pressure builds, however there is still the possibility of some showers and bands of rain here.

"Temperatures are likely to start out slightly below average, before returning to near average later in the period."
