Britons can expect fog, frost and bitter winds as November draws to a close. Maps forecasting the final week of November have shown snowfall across Northern regions of the UK, with the heaviest snow hitting Leeds, Carlise, and parts of Scotland.

Up to six inches (15cm) of snow can be expected in the areas surrounding Manchester, Leeds and Inverness.

Temperatures are also expected to reach lows of -8C, as a cold spell hits the UK.

Meanwhile, the UK can expect strong winds, as maximum gust speeds are set to reach 42mph (67kmph) on November 29, according to WXCharts.

Milder temperatures can be expected in the South, with London expecting temperatures of around 1C.

The incoming cold temperatures are expected to begin imminently, with the Met Office warning of heavy snowfall in the north of the country from Monday.

The cold blast is predicted to reach the south by Wednesday night.

“Wintry showers likely over high ground, and possibly falling to low levels at times.

“High pressure will linger around the west and southwest of the country, allowing for more settled conditions now and again with the chance of some sunny spells at times but also feeling cold, with overnight frost likely.”
