UK’s Indian Autumn set to end as cold spell sees some areas covered in snow

Parts of the UK are set to welcome snow over the weekend, with temperatures expected to reach freezing levels.

More snow is expected over the weekend and the next 10 days – with two inches forecast to hit the mountains.

Alongside snow, gales are also predicted to hit areas of the UK Monday with heavy rainfall to be experienced in other regions of the country, the Daily Mirror reports.

Met Office forecaster Annie Shuttleworth said: "From Monday there are some signals of some snow showers over the hills in Scotland, fairly typical for the time of year. We're not expecting snow in any low lying areas. Or any disruption from it."

Netweather TV forecaster Terry Scholey commented on the upcoming weather conditions as he said: “Unlike last week, the southerly wind will be largely devoid of tropical storm remnants, as the hurricane season across the North Atlantic and the Caribbean remain relatively quiet."

He added: "Later on Wednesday, a cold front approaches Northern Ireland and North West Scotland, bringing freshening winds and some rain.

"Thursday sees this front working its way slowly South and East across the country, although much of the day across a large portion of England and Wales should continue fine and warm.

“There’s some suggestion that the front may weaken or show down as it comes, but not all models are in agreement.

"Friday probably sees a slack pressure regime across Britain as cooler weather tries to move in from the North West.

“There are uncertainties as to the timing of this, however, making Friday the most difficult to predict. But it’s almost certainly going to be unsettled and eventually cooler."

Rocky weather conditions travelling from the Atlantic today (September 23) is a contributing factor to the torrential rain set to hit parts of the UK.
