UK snow forecast: First 'proper' bout of winter predicted
Get your snowballs at the ready as forecasters predict the first flurry later this week
It may be time to unearth the sledge from the depths of the shed and dig out the snow boots as winter slowly begins to creep in, after the first proper bout of snow has been forecast for Sunday evening.
Forecasters have predicted some flurries across areas of Scotland and the north west of England throughout November when temperatures begin to dip and icy Arctic winds blow in.
Colder weather may begin sweeping in from the north and temperatures in the south could drop to 5C by 9am this morning in London, and to 3C by the same time tomorrow.
Scotland can also expect a drop of between 6C and 8C.
However, the average temperature for the whole of UK in November is expected to be a more mild 9C.
A Met Office spokesperson said: "We will starts seeing some wintry showers of snow coming through on Sunday night and the early hours of Monday morning pushing in from north western areas. There is a risk of snow over high ground in Scotland.
"From Monday afternoon to Thursday we can expect fairly strong north westerly winds to blow in and we could see some rain, sleet and wintry showers.
"On Monday showers of snow may well become heavier and it could get increasingly wintery further north and across the north west."
The Met Office also stressed that it was "not unusual to see snow in late November and early December" and temperatures were only a couple of degrees lower than average for this time of year.
