We could be in for a white Christmas – or a white November at least – according to some forecasters.
Indeed, snow could fall in London as early as next week on November 26, according to BBC Weather.
On that day, snow showers are forecast in the capital which will be good news for some and a nightmare for others.

The long-range forecast given by the Met Office for November 22 to December 1 similarly reads: “High pressure will often lie close to western or southwestern parts of the UK during this period.
“This will tend to bring to a colder than average north or northwesterly airflow for a time.
“The most unsettled conditions will likely be across northern areas.
“Here, showers or longer spells of rain are likely with snow likely across higher ground and possibly falling to low levels at times.
“Strong winds are possible across the north, especially around coasts.
“Further south, it is likely to remain somewhat drier with fewer showers, but there is even a slight chance of some wintry weather here.
“At points when winds ease any clearer and calmer conditions that prevail will lead to some cold nights with frost and fog.”
People are also being warned of freezing temperatures and heavy snow to fall across swathes of the country from next week reported The Mirror.
People will need to wrap up warm as WXCharts maps are showing snow first hitting the north of the UK and then moving south over the following couple of days.
After a largely mild November, the cold weather is set to come from Arctic winds which will bring freezing temperatures and has slashed odds on it becoming the coldest November on record.
The Met Office has updated its forecast for next week and warned “snow likely across higher ground and possibly falling to low levels at times”, with The Express reporting that temperatures could fall by 10 degrees after 7C-10C highs at the weekend.
