“If that were to happen, there would be an increasing likelihood of colder weather, leading to a risk of fairly widespread overnight frosts.

“There could be sleet or snow showers high up in the northern half of the UK.”

Over the weekend, the Met Office warned higher parts of the UK are expected to see snowfall towards the end of October.

Forecasters said a “colder spell” was soon starting, with snow likely to cover the Scottish mountains and higher lands in England and Wales.

Senior Met Office meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said: “We’re probably going to see snowy weather in the higher areas as October moves into November.

“The areas likely to be affected are the Scottish Highlands as well as the higher lands of northern England and North Wales.

“Low areas are unlikely to see it.

“It’s totally normal at this time of year.”

According to Ladbrokes, this month could be the hottest October on record.

Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “The mild temperatures and sunshine have reduced the chances that this month will be officially considered a record high.”
