Weather experts have predicted when the UK can expect to see snow as temperatures are expected to plunge to around -11C next week.
WXCharts show the mercury could drop as low as -7C to -11C during the week of November 23 with the coldest conditions in the far north of Scotland.
However cities as far south as Brighton have been predicted to see sub zero temperatures by November 27 according to the weather maps.

From November 24, places such as the Grampians and the Highlands can expect to see snow – before moving down the country over the coming days, the Mirror reports.
By the end of the month it is likely to cover parts of northern England and North Wales.
There has not yet been any strong indication about chances of snow in the South West.
Oliver Claydon, Met Office, told the Express : “Long-lead models are showing there is a chance for things to turn a bit colder in the middle of next week.
“Uncertainty is hinged around an area of high pressure, if it’s further to the west then it could pull a chance of snow from the north.”
James Madden, forecaster for Exact Weather, told the Express : “The cold is likely to win out before the end of November bringing an early taste of winter and the risk of snow.
“Waning solar activity means chances are high for a ‘little ice age’ winter this year with notable periods of cold and snow.
“We have high confidence for the most cold and wintry conditions since December 2010 developing towards the end of the year.
“That could bring extreme cold temperatures and spells of widespread snow.”
