Britain’s calm autumn weather could take a wintry turn this weekend with chilly winds and plunging temperatures – and even the possibility of snow.
Forecasters say temperatures will take a tumble over the next few days with even the risk of a flurry of sleet or snow over high ground.
Overnight temperatures in Scotland and the north will dip to low single figures with lows close to freezing in parts.
Forecasters warn the current calm and settled weather is about to come to an end as wind and rain arrives at the end of the week.
They blame low pressure which until now has been held at bay by high pressure wedged over Scandinavia swinging in from the Atlantic.
As temperatures start to nudge freezing the odd wintry flurry over high ground in the north is not out of the question.
