If media reports are anything to go by apparently we are going to have a ‘White Halloween’ Despite half-term being sunny with 18C hights the Met Office is warning snow is on the way.

The Met office believes the UK will be hit by icy winds, which will see the mercury plummet to -7C.

Causing a deep freeze that apparently will last three weeks.

Are we really going to get three weeks of snow over Halloween? 1Met Office forecaster Sarah Kent said: “After mild temperatures, it will be time for woolly jumpers and hats.

“Winds turn to the north from Thursday, bringing cold polar air and much cooler temperatures across all parts by the weekend.

“There could be snow lying on high ground at the weekend, with temperatures low enough for wintry showers mainly in the north Pennines, north-east England and Scotland. If the wind direction changes, other areas could be at risk.”

The odds for snow have now been dropped to 1 – 2
