A new Arctic chill is set to hit Britain from Tuesday, November 2 with snow expected on some higher ground and temperatures in single figures across the majority of the UK. The latest minimum temperature charts from WXCharts predict the mercury on November 2 could fall to as low as -2C (28.4F) in the Scottish Highlands, with highs of 4C (39.2F) in London.
The forecast at 6am predicts temperatures will also be in single figures across northern England with low minimum ranges of between 0C (32F) and -1C (30.2F).
Higher ranges will be expected across Wales with minimum temperatures ranging between 2C (35.6F) and 4C (39.2F) whilst southern England will see ranges of between 3C (37.4F) and 5C (41F).
Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst added: “We’re likely to see some snowy weather in higher parts as October moves into November.”
The Met Office added colder spells were likely with an “increasing chance of frost and fog.”
The cold spell will continue into Wednesday, November 3 with temperatures falling below freezing across northern Scotland with lower average ranges of between -1C and 0C at 6am.
Meanwhile, most of England and Wales will see low ranges of between 2C and 6C (42.8F) while high pressure will linger across the South West with lows of 11C (51.8F).
Going into tomorrow, it will be unsettled across southern and central England and Wales with heavy rain and showers that will spread northwards into northern England, southern Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Cloud cover will break during the day on Wednesday, October 20 and sunny spells will also develop and rain will spread into northwest Scotland.
Temperatures will range between 13 and 18C (59-64F), the Met Office said.
Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin said: “It could turn quite windy across the south on Wednesday.”
Mr Deakin added a more “significant weather front drives south” on Thursday “introducing much colder air for the end of this working week.”
He continued: “So it starts very mild, but it turns an awful lot chillier by Thursday and Friday, with plenty of rain for most of us in between.”

Met Office meteorologist Sarah Kent also added there was an increasing chance of rural frosts on Thursday.
He said: “If you’re out mountaineering, don’t be surprised if you get wintry weather.”
Netweather forecaster Paul Michaelwaite also warned “rain in the north will be along a cold front, with colder air tucking in behind it” on Thursday.
He added: “It’ll be cold enough for the high ground of Scotland to see some sleet and snow, with further wintry showers following behind it as well.
“By Thursday, all parts will be into the chilly airflow, with long sunny spells inland and a scattering of showers that will be most frequent near coasts exposed to the north to northwest wind – they’ll continue to be wintry in northern regions as well.
“The wind will be noticeable and will knock a few degrees or so off of the temperatures.”
