According to forecasters, temperatures are set to be 3-6C (37-42F) below what is normally expected for the time of year. Temperatures will remain bitterly cold until the weekend where the mercury may begin to rise. These temperatures will be spread across the country as a cold weather front hits Western Europe.

Speaking to, Tyler Roys, senior meteorologist for AccuWeather said: “Over the next several days, it will be the chilliest across the United Kingdom since spring 2021.

“Temperatures will average 3-6C below what they are suppose to be for this time of the year.

“For context, much of western Europe will be experiencing this.

“This will last through the weekend before moderating.”

Graphs from WXCharts also show temperatures dropping to 4C (39F) on November 2.

Parts of Wales will even see the mercury plummet to 2C (35F) for multiple areas on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the forecaster predicts the cold snap will continue for multiple areas of the country.

Although Leeds and parts of Yorkshire will reach a high of 7C (44F), the south will see the mercury fall to 3C on November 3.

These freezing conditions will move south on Friday as multiple parts of the country will wake to frosty conditions in the morning.

While temperatures are expected to rise at the weekend, Mr Roys claimed a second cold snap is expected next week.

He concluded: “The next chance for another chilly airmass looks to occur around next Thursday to next Saturday, temperatures should moderate around on the 14th.

“AccuWeather Meteorologists are watching for early next week (Monday-Tuesday) for the potential for heavy rain and gusty winds to occur across parts of the United Kingdom though confidence in this is quite low.

“If this was to materialize western and northern United Kingdom (N. Ireland, Wales, far SW England, NW England, western and northern Scotland) at this time look to be the places that will endure this adverse weather.”

On Tuesday, the charts show a heavy band of weather rolling in from the Atlantic.

According to the graphs, there could be up to 7mm of rain per hour on November 3.
