The UK is set to experience a chilly end to the month, with Met Office experts warning that snow could be on the way as soon as next week

Weather forecasters have already warned that temperatures will plummet after this week, with some commentators describing the oncoming wintry spell as a 'mini ice age'

And in the last few days, the Met Office upgraded its snow forecast for the coming weeks from a 'slight risk of wintry showers' to 'likely snow and ice'.

With the mercury dropping to around -4C, data from WXcharts shows that Sunday 21, Saturday 27 and overnight on Tuesday 30 as the three days that snow is predicted to hit multiple parts of the UK.

The Met Office has issued an update as it confirmed colder weather is expected across the UK towards the end of the month and will be accompanied by snow, with the extended outlook from 21 November to 30 November reading:

"High pressure will often lie close to western or southwestern parts of the UK during this period. This will tend bring a north or northwesterly airflow across the UK, with the most unsettled conditions across northern areas. Here, showers or longer spells of rain are likely with some snow across higher ground, possibly reaching low levels at times."

"Strong winds are possible across the north, especially around coasts and across high ground. Further south, it is likely to remain somewhat drier and more settled with the chance of some longer sunny spells. However, these clearer conditions will lead to some chilly nights with frost in places and some fog patches, these slow to clear during the morning."

Meanwhile, new research has shown that millions of adults are “dreading” the winter months because they know their physical activity will reduce.

A study of 2,000 adults found more than half go outside much less as the nights draw in – blaming the cold, wet weather, less daylight, and a lack of motivation.
