A family enjoy the snow

First cold snap of autumn sees snow hit UK (but warm weather will return)

Snow was seen in higher parts of Scotland and north-east England over the weekend as the UK experienced “some of the coldest October days in a decade”.

Thankfully after the freeze temperatures will begin to climb as the week goes on.

Met Office meteorologist Mark Wilson said: “It will still be cold, but with highs of ten or 11 in the south.

“It will be a chilly week, but temperatures will recover closer to what they should be for the time of year.”
