Piers Corbyn, forecaster for WeatherAction, said: “Apart from some cold snaps the first half of November is looking relatively average for the time of year with some milder periods.

“However, during the second half of the month there is a greater risk of things tuning much colder and this will bring a greater threat of snow.".

A white Christmas could also become a reality, with bookies slashing the odds of snow on Christmas Day from 4/5 to 1/3.
