Cold air from the Arctic is forecast to send a shiver through Europe during November and will likely bring wintry conditions. Snow is likely to settle across northern and spread across to Spain during the second week of November, according to WXCHARTS' snow depth maps. The latest models also predict a small risk of snow to fall in northwestern regions of England on November 14, including Cumbria, Manchester and Liverpool.


Temperature models show France and the UK being blasted with temperatures lower than average towards the end of November.

Brian Gaze, forecaster at The Weather Outlook said: "The latest GEFS35 finishes week beginning 25/11 with a significant cold anomaly (850hPa level) across much of Europe.

"I'd suggest keeping an eye on updates in the coming days to see if this becomes a pattern."

BBC Weather's long-range forecast warned of Europe being hit by conditions triggered by La Nina, as cooler than average sea surface temperatures hit the Pacific Ocean.

The forecast between Monday, November 9 and Sunday, November 22, said: "This autumn, we have a La Nina event in the Pacific Ocean, which means much cooler than average sea surface temperatures over the central and eastern Tropical Pacific.

"Despite the Pacific Ocean being thousands of miles away from the UK, unusual conditions here can have a broad influence on global weather patterns, including over Europe.

"A La Nina event tends to increase the chance of the UK getting some decent cold snaps before Christmas, as we saw in both 2016 and 2017, when we last had a La Nina pattern.
