‘Snow and -2C’ this weekend to be followed by ‘yet another UK Indian Summer’

Despite snow and freezing conditions coming to the UK this weekend, weather forecasters reckon another period of "Indian Summer" warmth could be right around the corner.

We have seen unseasonably warm conditions already this month. Monday (October 9), when 26.1C was recorded at Kew Gardens, London, was the third consecutive day to surpass 25C. It was the first time that had happened in October since 2011.

However, conditions are expected to cool off significantly heading into this weekend. The Met Office has said snow is "likely" on higher ground in Scotland.

And advanced weather modelling maps from WX Charts show temperatures could reach as low as -2C in Cairngorms National Park at midday on Sunday (October 15). Even on lower ground in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, temperatures might struggle to surpass 1C.

Luckily however, Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden says an area of high pressure is heading our way next week and could replace the cold with "another bout of Indian Summer-type weather".

Madden writes: "From this weekend we will actually see a bit of a battleground developing across our shores – as cooler and more unsettled weather takes hold over the coming days – to deliver the first snow of this autumn season across higher ground.

"However, as we progress throughout this weekend and into next week, an area of high pressure will begin to nudge the cooler and more unsettled weather out of the way to deliver another period of warm and settled weather for many for the time of the year, and over a several day period."

Although temperatures won't reach as high as we've seen in recent days, with mornings to feel "much chillier", Madden says 20C could come in the south – well above the expected average for mid-October. Northern regions could reach as high as 15C over a "several day period".

He adds: "There will be ample periods of prolonged mid-autumn sunshine for large parts of the country to enjoy."
