Parts of the UK are being told to prepare for snow in the coming weeks as forecasters predict it to fall in October.

Next month is already due to see temperatures plummeting to 10C in places, bringing in frosty conditions for Brits to contend with.

Scotland has been the first part of the UK to be hit with snow with Yorkshire expected to see some fall in the weeks to come.

Experts say more parts of the UK will follow with snowfall but most will have to contend with wind and rain.

The Met Office expects a more conventional Autumn than previous years with the cold spell very much on the way.

Speaking to The Mirror, Greg Dewhurst, senior meteorologist at the Met Office, said: "Although snow is not forecast imminently, there is always a real chance in the weeks ahead. It is not uncommon at this time of the year.

"We have already seen snow in Scotland, and we could see some in other parts of the UK further down the line."

The news of potential snowfall comes as the Met Office warned of blustery weather welcoming the UK into October this week.

Next week will see gusty winds across many areas of the country.

The UK has experienced below-average wind speeds in recent weeks.

This summer also saw parts of the country record their lowest average wind speeds for 20 years.

Brits looking to enjoy the weekend can expect a washout with forecasts suggesting a washout in most parts of the country, which will continue into Monday.

Speaking earlier this week, Expert Met Office Meteorologist Adam Thornhill said: "For the rest of this week and for the weekend, we will continue to see low-pressure systems bringing blustery weather to the north of the UK whereas further south the drier, warmer weather remains thanks to the influence of high pressure extending up from the Azores.

"However, a shift in the position of the jet stream brings a change in our weather next week, allowing a cold front associated with a low-pressure system in the North Atlantic to spread eastwards bringing wet and windy conditions across the whole country throughout Monday. Behind the cold front, conditions will feel much more autumnal with a cooler feel and blustery showers for many."
