Exact date SIX inches of snow will hit UK revealed as Brits brace themselves for -7 icy plunge

FORECASTERS have predicted the exact date SIX inches of snow will hit the UK this month as Brits brace themselves for freezing temperatures.

The mercury is set to plummet to -7C as an icy plunge grips the country – and it won't be long before you're waking up to blankets of the white stuff.

Meteorologists have suggested up to six inches of snow will fall on November 26 as temperatures tumble below average, according to WXCharts.

The bitter chill is set to kick in towards the end of the month, when Brits can expect to see more wintry conditions arriving.

Scotland will bear the brunt of the frostiness, with those in the Highlands expected to see temperatures of around -7C.

Locals in Portree, Fort William and Inverness could be buried in half a foot of snow before the cold weather moves through England and Wales.

Those in Newcastle and the north east of England have been warned they will have to wrap up, as temperatures fall to -2C.

Brits elsewhere don't escape the freeze, as the cold weather front continues to move across the UK towards the end of the month and moving into December.

The Met Office also warned to expect "wintry conditions, especially across the north" in their long range forecast.

But a three-day flurry of snow could also arrive much earlier – as forecasters earlier suggested a 72-hour whirlwind could be headed our way on November 14.

Up to 2.5cm could fall each day from the end of the week, on the back of a harsh bout of wet and windy weather.

Millions will see heavy rain and blustery winds thanks to the fall-out from a tropical storm.

Storm Wanda may influence the type of weather we'll see in the coming days and over the weekend.

Aidan McGivern of the Met Office says we'll face a "mixed week of meteorology" with cloudy skies and some rain – but plenty of sunny spells too.

Weather fronts moving from the north-west to the south-east have today brought unexpectedly warm temperatures, he said.

"On Wednesday, there'll be some small progress with the weather fronts sinking south," he said.


"There'll be some heavier rain for a time in the Midlands, perhaps, as well as East Anglia and south-western areas, and a lot of low cloud in this area with some hill fog to start things off.

"Perhaps some brighter skies into Kent, but further north, that's where the brightest skies will be – North Wales, northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland."

But by tomorrow, Brits will awake to "low cloud, patchy rain, drizzle and hill fog".

"It'll be a dull and damp start," Mr McGivern said.

Bookies have slashed the odds on this being the coldest November ever, from 3-1 to just 50-4.

"We are headed for a big November freeze," said Coral's Harry Aitkenhead.

"It's left us with no choice but to significantly slash the odds on this month entering the record books as the coldest eleventh month of the year the UK has ever seen."
