UK weather forecast: Britain facing two weeks of SNOW and Halloween whiteout as cold bites


A PLUME of freezing air from the Arctic is about to descend across Britain putting parts of the nation at risk of snow through the next fortnight.

Wintery flurries are forecast during the tail end of October and possibly into mid-November as bookies start to slash the odds on a Christmas whiteout. It comes amid forecasts temperatures will plummet to -5C (23F) this week with trick or treaters to the far north of the UK facing a White Halloween. Elsewhere a clash in weather systems will bring an unusually dank and ‘murky’ witching hour, forecasters say,


Weather charts show the risk of a flurry in Scotland on the spookiest night of the year although it will be confined to high ground. Britain’s weather will make a dramatic u-turn over the next 24 hours with bitter northerly winds bringing the first taste of winter. An easterly airflow will set in around mid-week ushering a Scandinavian chill across the nation, forecasters warn.

Sunday 3 Nov - Tuesday 12 Nov


Sunday is looking very unsettled with rain and showers, heavy in places, pushing across the UK with a few limited drier spells in-between. A windy day with gales, especially in the far southwest and northeast. Through the following week the unsettled theme continues with further areas of rain for most parts interspersed with some drier and brighter spells. It may become drier and cooler at times in the far north, allowing any rain arriving from the south, to turn wintry over northern hills. The unsettled weather is likely to erratically clear southeastwards towards the end of the week, to perhaps become more settled by the following weekend, perhaps lasting until the end of the period. Temperatures mainly cooler than average normal, exacerbated by the wind and rain at times.


Wednesday 13 Nov - Wednesday 27 Nov


Through mid to late November confidence remains very low. The period may start more settled with colder, dry weather and widespread overnight frosts. If it has not already happened, signals are that a switch to more frequent west and southwesterly winds is most likely to occur, which would bring more unsettled conditions across the country once again. This would mean wetter conditions, especially in the west of the UK where there is also a potential for gales. The east will see the best of any drier weather. Temperatures may start below average at the start of the period but warming up slightly by the end of the month with more in the way of mild spells.

Meanwhile the Sun claims that “a band of high pressure over the UK” will “more than likely lead to snow” in the middle of next month. I give up.

Monday 4 Nov - Wednesday 13 Nov


Monday is looking very unsettled with patchy rain and showers, heavy in places, pushing across the UK with a few drier spells in between. A windy day with gales, especially in northern and eastern areas.

BBC monthly outlook


Summary


Drier mid-November, otherwise rather wet


_________________________________


Wednesday 30 October – Sunday 3 November


Becoming milder, wetter and windier


Rain will linger across the southwest of England and over southernmost Wales during Wednesday. This rain will edge into Northern Ireland on Thursday but much of the UK will have another fine day. Towards the end of the day, some heavier rain will push in form the west and spread east across the UK during Thursday night. Milder air will come in with this rain, reducing the chances of frost. Friday will then be overcast, misty and murky with further rain or drizzle for many, there will also be some hill fog. Across Wales and much of England, the rain will become more showery but locally heavy with a chance of thunder. Overnight, rain will steadily clear eastwards but it is likely to stay wet across Scotland and Northern Ireland. Meanwhile, a deepening low pressure system from the west will bring more rain to SW England and parts of Wales, some heavy with thunderstorm risks, winds will also strengthen, with gusts of 50-60 mph possible in the southwest by morning.


Rain is expected to move north and east across all of Wales and England on Saturday, some heavy, especially for Wales and the south and west of England. More significantly, winds could become very strong with gusts of around 50 mph across southern Britain, possibly over 60 mph in the far SW. Rain should push into Scotland later in the day but it will not be as heavy and with easterly winds some sheltered western areas will be drier. On Sunday, low pressure is likely to linger but weaken. This will bring further rain or showers across the country but winds will steadily ease.


Monday 4 November – Sunday 10 November


Chilly for the north. Rain in the south and west


Rain over southern regions looks likely to spread northwards across the rest of the UK for Monday, some of it heavy, especially across the south. There is a slight risk that the responsible low pressure system will be further south than expected, meaning drier and slightly chillier conditions would be possible for Scotland and Northern Ireland. However, confidence is reasonably high that southern regions will be wet and windy. As the week progresses, it becomes more likely that low pressure systems will track rather further south, so although the southern UK should stay wet and reasonably mild with temperatures near or slightly above the seasonal average, the north of the country, especially Scotland, will have an increasing likelihood of drier and colder incursions with overnight frosts and fog.


That is not to say that it will be dry every day but any wetter spells would be shorter and less frequent, and with easterly wind flows western Scotland could have some of the country's best weather through the second half of the week. An alternative scenario is for low pressure to weaken more quickly and drop further south with high pressure building more from the north and east. This would produce colder and drier conditions more widely, although especially across the northern half of the country.


Monday 11 November – Sunday 24 November


Turning milder and wetter


Confidence is rather low through this period because we will probably see changes in the weather pattern, and the timing of such changes is uncertain. Nevertheless, around the middle of the month it looks like the jet stream weakens, and thus low pressure systems associated with it become less vigorous and adopt a more southerly track into western and south-central Europe. This is likely to be compounded by high pressure building towards the UK from the north and northeast to deliver a drier, calmer and chillier period across most of the country with more widespread overnight frost and fog risks. T


he highest chance of any rain would be for southernmost regions. The risk to this forecast is that low pressure would linger and cause the mild, wet and windy weather to linger for longer. During the third week of November it looks like low pressure systems will reinvigorate and take a more northern track, thus bringing a return to milder, wetter and windier conditions across the British Isles. It is uncertain exactly when this change back to unsettled weather might occur, and there is about a 30 per cent risk that the high pressure will influence the weather pattern for longer, allowing chilly and rather dry weather to linger until late-November.


Further ahead


We'll take a closer look at how the forecast for the rest of November and early December is shaping up.

Tuesday 5 Nov - Thursday 14 Nov


Tuesday is looking rather unsettled with patchy rain and showers, some heavy, for much of the UK. The worst of the weather looks to be in the southeast with drier conditions further north with a few showers. It will be rather cold for most and remaining breezy. Looking further ahead, the unsettled theme continues with further outbreaks of rain for most parts interspersed with drier and brighter spells. The far north may become drier and cooler at times with some wintry showers over northern hills. The changeable weather is likely to clear southeastwards towards the end of the week leaving more settled conditions for the following weekend, perhaps lasting until the end of the period. Temperatures a little lower than average, exacerbated by the wind and rain at times.


Friday 15 Nov - Friday 29 Nov


Through mid to late November, confidence remains very low. The period may start more settled with cold, dry weather and widespread overnight frosts. More changeable conditions may occur in the latter part of the period in alignment with a switch to more frequent west and southwesterly winds over the UK. This could bring more unsettled weather, especially to western parts where there could be the possibility of gales. The east looks like it may see the best of any drier weather, though probably staying windy. Although temperatures are more likely to be below average at the start of the period, they are expected to come near average towards the end of the month with more in the way of mild spells.

I see the Met Office are still sticking with the idea of the tropical PV getting organised and zonal conditions ensuing.


That would be the form horse of course, but I hope they are 150% wrong.

So a mild and wet December? - makes a change! NOT! :/

What will it take to have a cold and wintry DECEMBER or Christmas week for a change!? 😞 - Surely one is well over due by now!?

Mind you their forecasts are always incorrect!? I wish I knew how they issue their seasonal forecasts or what models they base them on?

Yes, that doesn’t not make sense to me either.

for not naming or making this storm particularly news worthy. Its bloody chaos in Cornwall. I suppose it doesn't pose a risk to someone's fence panel in the home counties
