It is expected to fluctuate between 0-1 degrees Celsius this weekend, but the ground temperature is not expected to drop low enough to create a noticeable difference on the floor.

The Arctic explosion that caused the snow has been felt across the country for the past week, but despite the cold temperatures, the snow is not expected to settle.

The cold weather is expected to not only take over London, but on Friday 26 November people living as far down as the West Midlands will be able to see up to 6cm of snow, while those in Wales will be able to see up to 10cm.

The Met Office has predicted that for our weekend in London: “Friday and Saturday very unsettled conditions with storms, rain or showers, which can be wintry at times, especially at higher elevations.

“Mostly dry Sunday, with slowly decreasing wind. To be cold.”

The Met Office’s long-term forecast, forecasting weather in the UK from November 28 to December 7, says: “A more calm day on Sunday with rain and high winds clearing towards the south-east followed by drier and clearer interludes but remaining cold with patchy frost and ice as well as some hillside snow.

“Some scattered showers can hit the eastern coastal areas. Then it becomes largely unsettled during this period with rain and strong winds that often come from the west or northwest.”
