According to forecasters, parts of the country could see some snow settle towards the end of October. As reported by the Met Office, the UK is set to be hit by unsettled weather conditions moving into November. Due to the Atlantic front, Met Office meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said the UK is likely to see snow in some high areas of the country towards the end of the month.

He said: “We’re likely to see some snowy weather in higher parts as October moves into November.

“Likely areas to be affected are the Scottish mountains as well as higher ground in northern England and northern Wales.

“Low areas are unlikely to see any. It’s quite normal for this time of year.”

Another forecaster said the weather pattern was “one to watch”.

Forecaster Kirsty McCabe, of the Royal Meteorological Society, added: “There are tentative signs of some early season snowfall over northern hills at the end of October/start of November.

“But it all depends on global weather patterns, such as a weak La Nina in the tropical Pacific. One to watch.

“And while snow at Halloween is unusual it has happened before, 2008 being particularly memorable.”

In its long-range forecast, the Met Office has predicted more unsettled conditions will be focused in the North of England.

In the south and southeast, the conditions will be more settled and dry, the forecaster predicted.

“Moving forward, wider dry spells are likely across the country, with the risk of overnight fog which will clear by day.

“Through this period temperatures will remain near or above average.

“There is a chance of a colder settled period becoming established by early November.”
