Is it going to snow on Halloween and which UK locations will be affected?

Forecasters are predicting that widespread snow could affect various parts of the UK as early as next week, including the north, midlands and even the south.

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden told The Daily Star: "Temperatures will drop and the risk of snow will rise considerably towards the end of this month and into the start of November.

"There is a chance we could see blizzards developing over higher ground particularly in northern parts of the country.

WeatherAction's Piers Corbyn has said: "We are expecting some quite severe snowfall before the end of this month and it will not just be confined to the far north, this could reach parts of the Midlands or even further south.

“This spell of very cold weather looks like bringing substantial snow to a more widespread area of the country than people would necessarily expect at this time of year.

“We are also forecasting some very low temperatures, we could see the record for October broken this year.”
