November has so far mainly seen mild temperatures despite extreme winds and rainfall affecting Britain. However, maps and charts forecast freezing temperatures after Remembrance Sunday.

According to WXCharts, Sunday November 14 sees the mercury begin to drop as Brits brace for a chilly week ahead.

By midday on Monday November 15, much of Britain will see temperatures close to 5C (41F), with the minimum temperature suggested to be 0C (32F) overnight.

Wednesday November 17 is set to be the coldest day of the week, with an average of 1C (33.8F) in the north and 4C (39.2F) in the south.

Thursday November 18 sees 2C (35.6F) in London by midday, before temperatures begin to climb again by Friday.

A band of rain is also expected to sweep across Britain over the week, with Northern Ireland and the north east coast of Scotland soaking by 6pm.

Downpours up to 5mm an hour will move across from the north east by midnight, with the worst of the showers expected to pass the UK by midday on Wednesday.

According to Netweather charts, on Wednesday, November 17, there is a high possibility of snow in Scotland and then over the following day it is likely to hit the North East of England.

Then the risk of snow grows down the eastern side of the UK before the map on Saturday, November 20 suggests most of the UK will have a very high chance of snow.

The worst affected will be Scotland, northern England and the Midlands.

The Met Office also said there is likely to be a drop in temperatures at the start of next week and then again at the end of the month.

It stated: “Remaining changeable and autumnal particularly to the north through the start of this period as low-pressure systems dominate, sometimes accompanied by rain and strong winds.

“Elsewhere while rain is possible at times, drier and brighter conditions are more likely in the south and southeast regions, although some rain will likely reach even here at times.

“A rather cold start to the period will likely be followed by a brief recovery in temperatures, before a further likely trend down later on in the month.

“Later on in the month there will also be an increasing chance of some wintry conditions, mainly over the higher ground in the north, but with a slight risk to lower levels.”

Forecasters also predicted a three-day flurry of snow will move in from November 14 and will continue for 72 hours.

As much as 2.5cm of snow expected to fall per day, with Inverness set to be the first to see the in the early hours.

The Met Office said in their long-range forecast there is an increased chance of “wintry conditions” by mid-November.

They said: “Towards the end of November and into early December there are signs of an increased likelihood of north to northwesterly winds.

“This means that overall temperatures are likely to be near or slightly below average, although some milder spells cannot be ruled out.

“In such patterns the most unsettled, wetter and windier conditions are often found across northern areas, while the most settled, driest and brightest conditions are predominantly across the south.

“There is a slightly higher than normal chance of some wintry conditions, especially across the north.”

Jo Farrow, Accuweather forecaster, said the end of the week could see an outbreak of fog.

She said: “There will be a risk of fog by Thursday morning for England and inland Wales.

“It could be around for Remembrance Day events. For parts of central Britain, it will take its time to clear.

“A new low pressure will soon be spinning in from the Atlantic. Southerly winds begin to pick up through Ireland.

“It will still feel mild away from Scotland and the foggy spots. Showery outbreaks of rain appear for western Britain during the afternoon and then heavier bands of rain push over Northern Ireland on Thursday evening, reaching western Scotland.”
