The Met Office is forecasting Britain streets to be covered in early snow at the end of October.

After experiencing a mini heatwave in September, Britons are already experiencing a slight drop in temperatures, as autumn settles in.

In fact, the weather will continue to get cooler, enough for it to snow by the end of the month, the Met Office predicts.

Snow has already blanketed the Scottish lands, and is soon expected in the rest of the UK. Icy temperatures are predicted to drop to 10C in Yorkshire as October gets colder, reports the Evening Standard.

“Bad News” 

However, forecaster Aidan Givern said it was not “uncommon” to get snow this time of year.

Senior meteorologist at the Met Office Greg Dewhurst told The Mirror: “We’re now entering the time of the year when the change in conditions becomes really noticeable.

“As we enter October it certainly will get colder. Although snow is not forecast imminently, there is always a real chance in the weeks ahead. It is not uncommon at this time of the year.

“We have already seen snow in Scotland, and we could see some in other parts of the UK further down the line.”

Meteorological expert Dave King delivered “bad news” about the icy weather freezing the UK, according to Evening Standard. He said on This Morning: “It is gonna be bitterly cold and very frosty.

“That’s bad news for people with gas and electric because your bills are going through the roof.”

Some Birts expressed concerns over such extreme weather in the midst of a fuel crisis that is said to last for an entire month still.
