Parts of the UK will be hit with a blanket of heavy snow as the Met Office warns of “unsettled conditions” next week.

The snowy spell will begin in Scotland and Northern Ireland before descending to Wales and England as November continues.

Weather charts suggest snow will be falling at a rate of around 2cm per hour in some areas.

The Met Office’s long range forecast from November 19 to November 28 warns of a period of “unsettled weather”.

They said that additional spells of wind and rain continue across the UK as the month concludes.

The weather office said: “Across the south of the UK, conditions will probably become somewhat drier and more settled, although some spells of rain may still spread across at times.

“In the settled conditions, risk of frost and fog by night are possible. Widely mild at first but through next week temperatures return closer to normal, perhaps a little below at times.”
