Foggy skies greeted much of the UK this morning, with cold temperatures forecast to arrive this week. Cloudy with showers in some places is what the UK can expect weather-wise once we reach the penultimate week of November. As temperatures drop winter conditions could also be due to make an appearance. Here’s a full breakdown of the UK’s long-range weather forecast.

Winter is nearly here and with it, you can expect a dip in temperatures and weather as we start to reach the backend of November.

How cold can we expect the week after next to become? Is there any chance of wintery conditions beginning to settle in?

Below is a complete guide to how the weather is shaping up in the UK’s long-range forecast.

Long-range weather forecast – what can we expect?

The outlook for next week and beyond is reasonably similar to the current one.

First and foremost we can expect to see cloudy spells and lots of them.

The south and south-west of the UK, in particular, can anticipate settled dry spells for the most part thanks to zones of high pressure.

Potentially, these conditions could extend to all areas of the UK at various points.

However, the opposite can be said for northern areas with the probability of some spells of rain accompanied by brisk winds.

In the west and north-west, winds are likely to remain a constant feature of the week.

There is also the possibility of the north being subjected to some blustery conditions.

The Met Office long-range forecast from November 19 to November 28 states there will be winds “often be blowing from the west or northwest, with some incursions of northerly winds possible”.

The forecasters add towards the end of the period “frost and fog is likely overnight, this fog slow to clear during the morning.”

How cold will it get?

Temperatures will slightly drop and be close to or just below average in some places.

Towards the end of the week, there is the possibility of colder conditions emerging.

Maps from Netweather show temperature plummeting to -3C for Scotland by Monday, November 29.

The rest of the UK will see variations from -2C to just 3C, with WXCharts maps turning blue with cold.

Bookmaker Coral has cut odds on this winter being “the UK has ever endured” from 3/1 to 5/4.

They make it odds on, at 4/6, that snow falls in London during the month of November.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “We have endured some mild autumn temperatures but a big freeze is coming and we have slashed the odds on this winter going into the record books as the coldest the UK has ever endured.

“Snow could fall soon rather than later, with it odds on for a dash of the white stuff to fall on London before November is out.”

As of right now, there is no immediate risk of snow, however, WXCharts shows the potential for flurries over Scotland, the North of England and the eastern coast, with some snowfall possible in Wales.

Tyler Ros from AccuWeather said: “The threat for snow between November 17 to 22 looks to be around normal for the time of the year, which is any accumulating snow is likely to occur in the higher elevations of northern England and Scotland.

“We do have to watch a cold snap that appears to move into eastern Europe early next week.

“If this bleeds westward towards the UK (with the core of the cold remaining in eastern Europe), then the temperatures will be near to slightly below normal during this stretch.”
