A graphic from WXCharts shows the front will be slowly developing across the northwest before slowly sinking southwards. Scotland will take the brunt of the wall of snow, with a 40 percent chance of the white stuff covering wide areas of the nation. England and Wales are also expected to see their first flakes as the month draws to a close.

Northwest Scotland and northeast England are shown to be the first to experience potential snowfalls from November 18.

As the snow front develops across the northern Atlantic towards Scandinavia, chances of snowfall increase for Scotland, with more areas of England also likely to see a flurry.

But ahead of the snow, BBC Weather forecaster Carol Kirkwood said the UK is still set for more downpours this week and at the weekend.

Ms Kirkwood said: “This morning it’s a chilly start for some of us, especially so across Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England.

“Come further south, we’ve got more cloud, some rain around, the temperature is around 10C or 11C.

“There’s a band of rain with us, it’s a weather front, it’s been sinking southwards and then eventually will start moving northwards again.

“A peppering of shower across the north and the west. A lot of cloud in the south, clearer skies in the north, and that’s were we’ve got some frost.

“Quite a bit of sunshine in northern England and also Northern Ireland as we go through the morning, with a few showers in the west.”
