The Met Office has warned Britain could see snow as early as Monday as November takes a cold turn after this weekend with winter conditions ahead
The Met Office has warned Britons should prepare for snow after this weekend, with parts of England and Scotland facing the risk of colder weather.
Despite a mild November so far, the Met Office has warned the weather could turn colder.
The forecaster’s long-term forecast shows colder and more wintery conditions could set in, with a risk of snow as early as next week.
The Met Office said parts of the Scottish heights above 600m could very well see snow as of tonight.
This comes ahead of a much milder weekend where they predict Thursday and Friday temperatures could reach 16C.

But much colder air is expected to arrive this weekend and next week.
Although no snow warnings are issued at this point, there is a risk that snowfall will develop, but outbreaks are expected to be low and they do not anticipate any disturbance.
On Monday, however, temperatures are expected to drop to single digits with high winds in parts of the country.
The sudden change in weather could bring snow to some hills in Scotland and parts of northern England.
Temperatures could reach 0 ° C in parts of the UK with the cold snap coming from Eastern Europe.
WXCharts even predicted snowfall would hit Scotland on Sunday and then move south.
Even North Wales could see some windy snow towards the end of the month.
The Met Office forecast for the week of November 20 said: “A cold and potentially cloudy and drizzly start to this period in the north, with some winter showers on the heights.
“Winds will often blow between the west and the north.
“The high pressure will often affect the southern regions, bringing largely sedentary and dry conditions here, which can sometimes spread to the whole country.
“However, certain periods of rain are likely to affect the northern regions, accompanied by high winds.”
The closer the month of December, the more the risk of winter showers increases.
But some days will remain mild, with temperatures close to or just below average.
Nights will see prolonged frost and fog which should dissipate in the morning.
December will begin in much the same vein with “short cold spells” interspersed with dry, stable weather.
