The downpours are expected to hit towards the end of this month, with wintry conditions arriving in November.
A sprinkling of snow has been forecast over the hills of Scotland on November 8, according to the latest snow depth charts from WXCHARTS, with temperatures predicted to plummet to 0C.
Before that, Met Office forecaster Grahame Madge warned Storm Zeta will bring strong winds and rain to the UK on Sunday as it pushes low pressure across the Atlantic.

He told Express.co.uk: "It's a long way from our shores at the moment, but there is a concern over swell this weekend. Coastal communities are advised to take care as waves will be big and more impactful than people are used to."
Met Office Chief Meteorologist Frank Saunders added there is a chance of flooding over the weekend.
He said: “This week has been fairly unsettled and we’ll see this typical autumnal weather continuing over the weekend, with heavy rain and strong winds expected to bring disruption and risk of flooding to some areas."
“Several yellow rain warnings are in place from today until Sunday, covering parts of northwest England, Wales and western parts of Scotland."

"Across the warning areas, rainfall totals of 30-40mm can be expected quite widely by the end of Friday, whilst over the hills and mountains of north Wales and Cumbria, where rain will be heaviest, more than 100mm is possible.”
BBC Weather's long-range forecast warned of cold air sweeping the UK from the Atlantic as November arrives.
The forecast between Monday, November 2 and Sunday, November, 8 said: "Monday will start as the previous week left off, with low pressure and active fronts bringing windy and wet conditions to most of the UK."
"The remnants of Ex-Hurricane Zeta may be contained within Monday's low pressure area. Mild in the south and east of England. This low pressure will clear by Tuesday, leaving a colder wind from the northwest and a few showers racing across the country."
"Winds ease by mid-week as a big high pressure ridge moves in from the west. The threat of a frost on Tuesday and Wednesday night, so gardeners please take note!"

The Met Office's long-range forecast between Friday, November 13 and Friday, November 27 added temperatures are forecast to be "lower than average" during next month.
The forecast said: "Settled weather is likely to continue until the middle of November, with high pressure looking to dominate. This will bring generally dry conditions, especially for the south with any wet and windy weather being mostly confined to the north."
"Confidence is currently low for the second half of November but current signals suggest an autumnal setup with colder conditions developing and more frequent showers, with the heaviest of these showers affecting the east and northeast of the UK."
"Another spell of drier, more settled conditions is possible towards the end of November, but confidence remains low for this. Despite the settled conditions in the south temperatures are expected to be lower than average for the time of year."

Europe's weather forecast
BBC Weather forecast a "lively" end to the week for European countries as "rain-bearing cloud" dumps hail-mixed showers on the continent and cool air swirling around many parts plunges temperatures to single digits.
Weather conditions across Europe are looking "quite lively" at the moment, according to BBC meteorologist Chris Fawkes. Pointing to a satellite picture of the Atlantic, the presenter explained that an area of cloud is heading across the UK and into the heart of Europe as well. He forecast that this will be "rain-bearing cloud".
Mr Fawkes told viewers: "As it pushes eastwards across Germany, the rain will tend to get lighter and patchier as we go through Friday. A lot of cloud will follow with a little drizzle too."
"Some more damp weather will push into Belgium, the Netherlands and northern portions of France. All the while it will be fairly gusty."

He continued: "Now we're looking at some heavy showers in Turkey through Thursday and Friday as well. Some of these could have hail mixed in with them, so there weather will be quite lively.
"For Greece though the weather is looking increasingly drier towards the end of the week. There'll be more sunshine with showers tending to fade away."
The BBC presenter added: "Now we've still got cool air with us in Scandinavia. Temperatures are struggling with highs of about seven is Oslo and Stockholm. It will be cold enough to see some snow across those higher elevations in Sweden and Norway."
Mr Fawkes said: "On Saturday, there's some potentially disruptive winds working into the western side of the United Kingdom, perhaps part of the south as well."

"Rain will move across the UK into northern areas of France. But across central Europe there'll be a drier day with more sunshine to go around."
"After a sunny day in Paris on Saturday, we'll see more cloud and rain moving in through Sunday and into Monday as well, but it will turn at least a little bit milder for a time. Meanwhile in Kyiv, there'll be rain over the next few days."
