UK and Europe weather forecast latest, November 4: Freezing temperatures cause snow showers in Britain
UK's weather forecast
According to Express, Britain is set to face chilly weather today as a cold bubble brings snow and more heavy rain.
Storm Aiden and the remnants of hurricane Zeta brought a very wet and gusty end to October. On Tuesday wet weather will continue with an “icy tinge” according to weather forecasters. Tuesday will also see risks of frost and fog as the UK heads into November. Forecasters predicted snow overnight and for Tuesday in Scotland and Wales.
Met Office Meteorologist, Aidan McGivern, said: “It’s cold enough for some snow to fall over the mountains of Scotland. And another little features just scurries across southern parts of Wales into the southwest by the end of the night bringing some heavy rain and also some snow over the Welsh mountains.”
Jo Farrow, Netweather forecaster, said: “The band of rain and mountain snow over central Scotland becomes more showers in the morning but still with an icy tinge."

“The Cumbrian Fells even the tops of the Welsh mountains may see wintry bits as Tuesday starts on a cold feeling morning. The winds veer to the west and then northwest through the day adding to the chilly feeling.”
By the afternoon, the wetter weather will begin to ease off slightly but persist in the Highlands.
Ms Farrow said: “Scattered showers continue to move in from the west but for many, there will be a lot of fine, bright even sunny weather about."
“Showers persist over the north west Highlands, a few reaching down the Irish Sea to coastal Wales but elsewhere it becomes drier, calmer and cold. This brings the risk of frost and fog for early November.”
Although some rain may clear, cold temperature will not according to forecasts. Mr McGivern said Tuesday morning will be much colder “compared to Monday’s remarkably mild temperatures across southern parts of the UK”.
He added: “But it will be cold gray and wet for the Midlands, central southern England and then later in the morning East Anglia in the southeast.”

In the afternoon snow will again feature in the Scottish mountains, according to Mr McGivern. He said: “It’s going to feel quite chilly I think 8 to 11 Celsius in a brisk breeze which is easing through the day and that breeze will continue to ease on Tuesday night.”
Overnight, rain is set to be confined to northern and western coasts with clearer spells inland. Fog is expected in central and southern parts of England and even some frost.
Temperatures on Tuesday night will plummet close to freezing and below in some spots. Wednesday will start chilly again but is set to be clearer for most parts than Tuesday. In the north of Scotland there will be some showers and also in western coasts. On Wednesday temperatures will be between 10-11 Celsius for most of the UK.

Europe's weather forecast
BBC Weather forecast brisk winds, heavy showers and some coastal flooding for parts of Europe for the start of this week as the unsettled wet and windy conditions look set to continue for some time.
The spell of unsettled wet and windy weather we've seen recently across parts of northwest Europe will ease later in the week, according to BBC meteorologist Sarah Keith-Lucas. She told viewers that this is a result of high pressure, which is set to build in the Atlantic. However, she noted that for the here and now, there is still quite a lot of cloud across parts of the UK up towards Norway and Sweden.
Ms Keith-Lucas said: "Brisk winds, heavy showers, could be some coastal flooding and some snow around too. There's also this trailing weather front which is pushing south across parts Spain, France, Switzerland up towards Poland as well."

"Towards the southeast of that weather front, most places will be dry and warm. But there are scattered showers and perhaps some thunderstorms developing through Cyprus and Turkey as well."
She continued: "It will be drier for the likes of Greece, Croatia and much of Italy. But then to the north of that, we're back into that weather front, bringing those showers. To the north of that, for Scandinavia, it will be unsettled."
"In fact, it will be still rather cool and blustery conditions with low pressure sitting close by."
The weather presenter added: "As we move into the middle part of the week, higher pressure will start to build across the UK into northern France as well. There will be less windy, drier conditions here."

"There will also be further downpours developing through parts of Portugal and Spain, quite heavy at times here."
Ms Keith-Lucas told viewers: "And that trailing weather front is still sitting across parts of Austria in towards Poland as well. London will be gradually warming up as we look towards the end of this week."
"But further heavy downpours around for Madrid over the next four or five days or so. Berlin is looking largely dry and settled. However there'll be a bit of rain for Moscow and Kyiv by Thursday."
