It's all been rather mild so far this autumn, but that's about to change for large parts of the UK.

Temperatures are expected to plummet to around -4C, with Scotland set to be covered in at least three inches of snow before Wednesday.

Met Office forecasters Helen Roberts said: “Monday morning’s commute could see transport disruption in Scotland, with low-level snow flurries possible into north of the Central Belt and a few centimetres of snow over 400 metres.

“A few more centimetres of snow could fall into Tuesday in northern Scotland, with more snow in similar areas on Wednesday and the north Pennines at risk of wintry flurries.”

Meanwhile, Britain is also set to be hit with various wind storms this week. We can expect Atlantic gales arriving at around 60mph, and will affect the north and south by Thursday.

Forecaster Tyler Roys added: “Britain is most likely to see 17 to 22 wind storms with gusts over 50mph by the end of winter, with a total of 24 wind storms a 20-30 per cent chance...”

That basically means, it's officially hat, gloves, ear muffs, big coat season. So wrap up warm!
